From the Preclassic to the present, Maya peoples have
continuously built, altered, abandoned, and re-used structures,
imbuing them with new meanings at each transformation. Ruins of
the Past is the first volume to focus on how previously built
structures in the Maya Lowlands were used and perceived by later
peoples, exploring the topic through concepts of landscape, place,
and memory. The collection, as Wendy Ashmore points out in her
foreword, offers "a stimulating, productive, and fresh set of
inferences about ancient Maya cognition of their own past."
