Tatiana Proskouriakoff (1909 - 1985) was an American Mayanist scholar and archaeologist. In this book she combined her talents as a scholar, artist and architect, to present breathtaking artistic reconstructions of what 36 ancient Maya sites in Central America and southern Mexico may have looked like more than 1,000 years ago. Her text summarizes the archeological findings at each site. Andrew Carnegie founded the Carnegie Institution of Washington in 1902 as an organization for scientific discovery. It has published over 600 books since 1902.
