Summary and Info
In 2006, the University Press of Colorado published The Carnegie Maya: The Carnegie Institution of Washington Maya Research Program, 1913-1957. This volume made available once again to scholars the extensive data published in the CIW Year Book series. The Carnegie Maya II: Carnegie Institution of Washington Current Reports, 1952-1957 continues this project by republishing the CIW Current Reports series. The final CIW field project took place in July of 1950, in the Maya region of MayapÃ¡n, where extensive and detailed investigations were conducted for five years. To ensure the rapid dissemination of the results of the MayapÃ¡n Project, two series of papers described the work being undertaken and reported the preliminary findings. These were volumes 50 through 57 of the Year Books and numbers 1 through 41 of the Current Reports. A total of forty one Current Reports were published by the Carnegie Institution of Washington from 1952 to 1957. All of these are reproduced in The Carnegie Maya II, accompanied by an introduction by John Weeks, a forward by Marilyn Masson, and a summary table of data compiled by Marilyn Masson regarding artifacts unearthed at MayapÃ¡n. The included CD-ROM contains the complete sets of reports from both The Carnegie Maya and The Carnegie Maya II. Thematically and regionally organized and fully searchable, it makes hundreds of documents from the Carnegie Institution's Maya program available in one source.
