From dawn to dusk


Through the presentation of over 160 exceptional objects belonging to the National Heritage of Guatemala, the exhibition catalogue retraces the development of the Mayan civilisation, its rise and its decline after the arrival of Spanish Conquistadors in 1524. It aims to highlight recent discoveries that led to a significant shift in the understanding of pre-Hispanic societies of the Mayan era and a broader, deeper knowledge of its culture.
