    Spring Lecture Series
    Alexandre Tokovinine
    Assistant Professor of Anthropology, University of Alabama

    Alexandre Tokovinine (University of Alabama) will present new epigraphic discoveries about Classic Maya cities in his talk “Empires: Naranjo and Holmul in the shadow of greater powers, 378-744 C.E.” The fates of ancient these Maya cities were not in the hands of their ruling families. Instead external political forces linked to Central Mexico in the 4th century and to dynastic wars in the 7th century transformed the Maya world.
