The Maya in a Digital Age


Die Maya im digitalen Zeitalter

The wooden lintels of Tikal belong to the most significant pieces of art of the ancient Maya. We will discuss the latest state of research concerning their hieroglyphic inscriptions and iconography. We will also present our new digital documentation project for the analysis of Classic Mayan texts that will enable a digital dictionary.

Christian Prager, Sven Gronemeyer and Elisabeth Wagner will deliver a presentation under the moderation of Alexander Brust at the „Museum der Kulturen“ in Basel on Wednesday, the 2nd of March 2016 from 6-8 pm. An entry fee applies.

More information are available in the museum’s flyer [in German] on page 7.
