Mayan Archaeological sites

  • Mayan Beach Garden review of ruins in the Yucatan
  • Gorp: Archaeological sites Gorp is a slick commercial site that has very good articles about the sites in Mexico and Central America. It focuses on the major sites, however, so if you are looking for information on something obscure, you probably won't find it here. Nevertheless, it's a very good site with pictures and maps.
  • A little bit corny, but you can see what your name would look like in Mayan Glyphs, learn about everyday Mayans, and other interesting tidbits.
  • Maps: People of Pre-Columbian Mexico. If you are interested in Maps of ancient Maya, this is a nice Map. You can click on buttons that will reveal seven different maps covering different time periods. It's a little slow because the maps are quite large, but this is a nice reference if you are interested in the population during the different time periods.
  • Map: Interactive Mayan World. Fairly complete map with links to sites. Click on a site to view large pictures. The pictures are quite large, but sampled down far enough that the pictures come up fairly reasonably.
  • Maya Pictorial views of many sites in Mexico, Belize and Guatemala. Includes maps and photographs of many sites hard to find elsewhere. Excellent resource if you are wondering whether or not to visit little known sites, or if you just want to know know what they look like.
  • MesoWeb Another good magazine-style site about Mayan culture with links to excellent archaeological articles.
  • Mundo Maya Online One of the best sites on-line for information about Mayan culture, sites and history. This magazine-style site has excellent pictures to accompany the many articles from multiple sources.
  • Yaxuna Archaeology project. What a great site! I had never heard of Yaxuna when I saw this site, and I thought I knew all the ruins in the Yucatan. This site has many Quicktime VR tours where you can really get the feel of what it looks to be at the ruins. Don't miss this site. I only had to wait a couple of minutes on a 56K modem for each VR to download. It was worth it.
  • Archaeology Magazine: Mexico, South and Central America. From the archives of Archaeology magazine, this select group of articles is very interesting. Although not inclusive of all the articles covering Mayan sites, it's worth reading if you don't subscribe.
  • Maya Ruins of Yucatan -- This heavily commercial site about Yucatan travel has a lot of adds on the page that make the site look complicated and the heavy use of frames make it hard to use, but there is some nice information about some lesser as well as more commonly covered sites. Ruins covered are: Acanceh, Ake, Chichen Itza, Dzibilchaltun, Uxmal, Ek Balam, Izamal, Mayapan and Yuxuna. Some pictures are included.
  • Mayan Ruins of Quintana Roo This site is a continuation of the previous site. Ruins covered are: Coba, Dzibanche, El Rey, Kohunlich, Muyil, Tulum and San Gervasio. Only a few pictures are included.
  • Mayan History 101 -- This site is developed by a world history teacher for world History teachers with lots of royalty free pictures of Mayan ruins and the information to with them. I highly recommend this site for good unbiased information about Mayans.
  • Underwater Archaeology in Mexico - This is a site sponsored by INAH, Mexico's official archeological division. This site suffers in its ability to provide good user navigation, but have patience because there is a wealth of information not found elsewhere.
