The Late Preclassic period ended with a still mysterious decline that saw disturbances and changes in the economic and political landscape.

We discovered a variety of historical, economic, and neuropsychological perspectives that challenge Western feminist ideologies. This suggests an opportunity for Calakmul to offer to help Quirigua defeat Copan, perhaps by providing armed forces. Describing many of their own discoveries, two of the world's leading experts in Maya hieroglyphs take the reader into a once-hidden history, setting out the latest thinking on the nature of Maya divine kingship, statehood and political authority, and describing all the most recent readings and archaeological finds. These drawings of Tikal Stela 23 (left side, front, right side) depict the only identified female ruler of Tikal.Born as Sak Witzil Baah (“White First Hill”, or “White Gopher Hill”) in AD 588, he took his grandfather's name at his accession. The dynastic line of Tikal, founded as early as the 1st century AD, spanned 800 years and included at least 33 rulers. Group IV was the dwelling of a household which acquired exceptional power within the city and had relationships with the royal dynasty as testified by epigraphic evidence (Jackson 2013). His construction program rivaled that of his predecessors, and contributed enormously to the surviving records of Palenque history. Simon Martin and Nikolai Grube's book is exciting because it uses the recent decipherment of Maya hieroglyphs to reconstruct the lives of dozens of Maya rulers.

Decline in the south also probably led to increased lowland trade, which spurred development in several northern regions that ushered in the era of Classic Maya civilization.Situated at the disciplinary boundary between prehistory and history, this book presents a new synthesis of Late Bronze Age and Early Iron Age Greece, from the rise and fall of Mycenaean civilization, through the "Dark Age," and up to the emergence of city-states in the Archaic period. This program of epicentral monumental construction appears to have occurred in the context of pan-regional balkanization following the defeat of the Kaanul kingdom seated at Calakmul at the hands of Tikal in AD 695, which resulted in the breakdown of Demarest et al. Microfacies analysis demonstrates that the limestone of the stelae and the SubII c-1 main façade comes from the same quarry since both have the same textures and microfacial features.
