Recommended Reading

For a bit of background reading to help you make the most of your visit, try A Forest of Kings: The Untold Story of the Ancient Maya, by Linda Schele and David Freidel; The Blood of Kings: Dynasty and Ritual in Maya Art, by Linda Schele and Mary Ellen Miller; and The Maya Cosmos, by David Freidel and Linda Schele. The best companion book to have is Joyce Kelly's An Archaeological Guide to Mexico's Yucat√°n Peninsula, even though it lacks historical and cultural information, and many sites have expanded since it was written.
