from a friend...

If you love the Popol Vuh, you might enjoy reading Maya Cosmos by David Freidel, Linda Schele and Joy Parker where they tie the Popol Vuh stories to the stars in the sky.

I'm a history buff too, and the ancient Mayan culture has always interested me. Mel Gibson is supposedly filming a movie in the Yucatan near the city of Merida, { which is one of my favorite city in the world ! } about the Yucatecos Mayans in their golden age. The film will be done in a Mayan dialect, which subtitles. siempre con saludos, mel s.

You may find this interesting then.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A while back I posted asking about the meaning of Maya on behalf of my partner.

Since then, my partner has gone off and done some research, contacting a number of people in the field. They responded enthusiastically as not many people had asked this question before and as a result they have written a definition of Maya that is available on line. It is not definitive, but is very interesting.
