The purpose of this site is to provide a space for the community-based exploration of ancient Mayan astronomy as it can be recovered from or as it has been associated with the hieroglyphic writing system.  This Google site organizes a set of Google forum discussions broken up by themes.  Each page in this site provides a summary of the consensus arising out of these themes.

This site, therefore, provides a window into the construction and organization of academic knowledge.  It should not be taken as the final word, but as a representation of the process in progress.
