The Ahau Chronicles Volume 22Happy Ahau Day! Click on the above the blue
While I felt the need to commemorate the anniversary of the death of Palenque’s king Chan Bahlum in our last newsletter, I have returned to the topic of the Ninth Oxford International Symposium on Archaeoastronomy which I attended in January in Lima, Peru. There was an entire afternoon dedicated to the discussion of the Maya Calendar and 2012 with many famous scholars weighing in with their latest research. As always, I listened with a skeptical ear and was pleased when they presented a wealth of data that upheld many of my hypotheses about the island monument I have been studying for so long. Though their talks dealt with the subject in an objective and abstract fashion, much of what they spoke of had concrete associations with the very real monument that appears to be the key to unraveling the mysteries of 2012.
