Film Description MAYA 2012: Lords of Time
May 5, 2012 - January 13, 2013

MAYA 2012 leads visitors on a journey through the Maya's time-ordered universe, expressed through their intricate calendar systems, and the power weilded by their divine kings, the astounding "lords of time." Visitors explore the Maya world through interactive experiences and walk among sculptures and full-sized replicas of major monuments.

The exhibition features over 100 remarkable objects including artifacts recently excavated by Penn Museum archaeologists from the site of Copan, Honduras.

Visitors follow the rise and fall of Copan, moving across the centuries to discover how Maya ideas about time and the calendar have changed up to the present day. Contemporary Maya speak to their own heritage and concerns for the future. MAYA 2012 uncovers a history and culture far richer and surprising than commonly supposed.
