Although environmental evidence indicates that drought episodes might have begun in the ninth century,they gradually increased in frequency through the eleventh century and generated devastating effects on the late Terminal Classic period civilization.
First, it corroborates the existence of extreme dry environmental conditions during the Terminal Classic period dated between the ninth and eleventh centuries. November- Thomas Garrison Lecture: Friday, November 9,7: Giddens Learning Center E Lecture: Friday, A Contested Landscape: Lidar and the Pervasiveness of Maya Warfare" Recent large-scale lidar acquisitions in the Maya lowlands have revealed unprecedented views of the great cultural impact left upon this ancient landscape.
Perhaps most surprising was the pervasiveness of grandiose features relating to warfare and defense. Common narratives of Maya conflict isolate war as a contributing factor to cultural decline, supported by hasty defense systems detected archaeologically, and also patterns in texts that show increasing enmity prior to societal collapse in the southern lowlands.
Lidar shows that while these interpretations may be accurate, war was omnipresent throughout the time of the Preclassic and Classic Maya and may have at times actually been a catalyst for growth and stability.
The lecture will give a background on remote sensing in Maya archaeology, including my earlier work around San Bartolo and Xultun.

Saturday Lecture - October 20, In this talk I examine the latest historical evidence regarding this transformative event, including new readings that confirm the interpretation of the arrival as a military conquest alongside the establishment a new political order and alliance network with strong Teotihuacan connections. California State University Lecture: Friday, January 26,7: Giddens Learning Center e Controversial History of Chocolate in Mexico The purpose of this talk is to provide an overview of the history of chocolate in Mexico from the pre-columbian times to the present.
I will speak about a few cases of the role played by the cacao or chocolate in the colonial society of Mexico. The cases will show us the continuities of some of the attributions and meanings of the appreciated commodity that Latin America, and particularly Mexico, gave to the world as part of a complex process of transculturation.
The first case deals with the image of a monkey hanging from a cacao tree in a paradisiacal garden. It was painted in about in one of the walls of the cloister of the Augustinian Monastery of Malinalco, by indigenous tlacuilos directed by the monks. The second case of study is the analysis of a manuscript entitled Acerca del Chocolate, which is a treatise that discusses whether the chocolate breaks the ecclesiastical fast.
It is attributed to an anonymous Spanish Carmelite theologian friar writing in Rome, Italy about the issue, in response to the inquiry of either a Monsignor or a Bishop living in Mexico, approximately in Saturday workshop - January 27,9: A Survival of the Mesoamerican Game Ulama, the distinctively Mesoamerican ballgame, has a history dating back years. The game was such an integral part of the society, that nearly ballcourts have been reported in the territory extending from the American Southwest to El Salvador.
The institution was complex and carried diverse meanings and functions, such as: The central importance of the ballgame is attested to by the fact that is clearly portrayed in the art of the Olmec, Zapotec, Maya, Toltec and Aztec and was an important element in a pan-Mesoamerican cosmovision. The Spanish immediately recognized that the ballgame was a great deal more significant than merely recreation and so vigorously suppressed its playing.
