Extractions: World History (home) Encyclopedia Index Localities Companies Surnames ... This Week in History History of astronomy in the news Astronomy is probably the eldest natural science , dating back to antiquity . Early astronomy involved observing and predicting the motions of visible celestial objects, especially star s and planets. An example of this early astronomy might involve a study of the relationships between the " apparent height " of the noon Sun , with respect to the changing pattern s of nighttime star s. Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) crafted his own telescope and discovered that our Moon had craters, that Jupiter had moons, that the Sun had spots, and that Venus had phases like our Moon. Galileo claimed these observations were comprehensible only within the Copernican system , in which the planets revolved around the Sun and not the Earth, as was commonly believed then. Ancient astronomers were able to differentiate between stars and planets; as Stars remain relatively fixed over the centuries , while planets will move an appreciable amount during a comparatively short time. Early culture s identifed celestial objects with god s and spirit s. They related these objects (and their movements) to phenomena such as

Extractions: Read about the problems facing the Maya today in Chiapas Mexico. Welcome to Jaguar Sun! I'm Jeeni Criscenzo, the author of a novel about the ancient Maya, Place of Mirrors . Many of the people who have read my book have asked me how they can learn more about the Maya. Some readers have said that they would have enjoyed my book more if they had a map of the places I described and a glossary of the Maya words used in the story. Since Place of Mirrors is based on actual historical people and events, some readers want to know which characters are real or fictional. I hope Jaguar Sun provides you with a basic introduction to the ancient and present day Maya culture and information to help in your understanding and appreciation of Place of Mirrors . If you are looking for more information, be sure to check the Resources section. I'll be adding to this site as time permits.

Extractions: Typically, she continued her work as long as she was able. The night before her final hospitalization she took part in a seminar, in spite of the combined effects of her illness and chemotherapy. She died three days later, surrounded by friends and family.. I will not try to list the sum of Linda's contributions, both as an epigrapher or as one who shared the fascination of Mayan hieroglyphics with so many of us. Those of you who have read the books she contributed to or attended the Texas meetings know her value. Her loss leaves an empty space to those who learned so much from her. Beyond her more formal accomplishments, her earthy humor, enormous enthusiasm, and ability to inspire others will all be greatly missed. As will be the generousity she shared so freely with others, from her work with MayaQuest in educating hundreds of schoolchildren to her willingness to take the time to dissuade a single fool (me, for instance) from her folly. Linda's last wish was for enough funds to be raised to create an endowed professorship in Mesoamerican art so that her work would be continued after her death. You can share in helping her last hope to become reality by contributing to the
Extractions: It is generally believed that what we recognize as the ancient Maya culture began around 300 AD as an offshoot of the Olmec civilization. The central Mexican city of Teotihucan traded with the Maya and its influence can clearly be seen in some Maya sites, such as Tikal. In fact, the collapse of Teotihucan in the sixth century had a notable effect on the Maya, causing a virtual standstill of new construction for several decades. Between 600 AD and 800 AD , the Classic Maya theories have been proposed to explain this "collapse" including: over-population, extensive warfare, revolt of the farmer/laborer class, or any number of devastating natural disasters. Whatever the reason, its effect was contained to the central region By the time of the Conquest, the Maya civilization was in its Post Classic phase and had reverted to an essentially Maya culture in scattered city-states. It was this lack of cohesion that would thwart the Spaniard's attempts to conquer the Maya. Although the Maya have endured repression and persecution in one form or another for the past 500 years, more than 6 million descendants still maintain a culture that is distinctly Maya in areas of Mexico, Guatemala, Belize and Honduras.
