'The Maya were unique among pre-Hispanic civilisations of the Americas in elaborating a sophisticated, fully developed writing system.  For a very long time little of their script could be understood, but in recent years major advances in decipherment have shed a whole new light on the Maya world and those who ruled it.  From inscribed stone monuments set up in the temples and plazas of their cities has emerged written history: the chronicles of the Maya kings.
Drawing on a wealth of sources - from the accounts of early explorers and archaeologists to the most recent research - David Drew charts the course of Maya discovery and presents answers to many of the mysteries posed by one of the most enigmatic and intriguing of all ancient societies.'
