The Carnegie Maya:
The Carnegie Institution of Washington Maya Research Program, 1913-1957
by Jane A. Hill and John M. Weeks, eds.
This complete set of reports from the Carnegie Institution's Maya program collects in one thematically and regionally organized volume hundreds of documents from a foundational New World archaeological project. The Carnegie Institution of Washington sponsored archaeological, ethnographic, linguistic, and historical investigations in the Maya region of southern Mexico and northern Central America between 1914 and 1957. The institution led the field during that time, with financial support and other resources no university could match.
|The Museum Library was founded in 1900 with the acquisition of the personal library of Daniel Garrison Brinton. Today the library's collections emphasize cultural, social, physical and biological anthropology, prehistoric, Classical and Near Eastern archaeology, and linguistics as well as related fields such as museology.
