Online Lecture: “Ancient Maya Ancestor Veneration and Political Authority in Western Belize”

UTSA professors Jason Yaeger and M. Kathryn Brown explore the phenomenon of ancient Maya ancestor veneration. It serves as one line of evidence for reconstructing the political history of western Belize. Ancestor veneration provides a critical understanding of the nature of political authority and political organization, and how those changed over the course of nearly two millennia, from the Middle Preclassic period to the Terminal Classic period. Yeager and Brown will focus on the Classic-period royal burials at Buenavista del Cayo, which are featured in the exhibition "Nature, Power, and Maya Royals. "
