It's funny how one line of inquiry can after a few digressions lead you to new conclusions and insights. While working on a project regarding the role of Peten trade routes and the rise of the northern Maya Lowland kingdoms from the Pre-Classic to the Late Classic something distracted me. I was soon reading recent articles about the role of Chichen Itza on the iconography and architecture of Lowland Classic sites in the Terminal Classic. It's very fascinating. Looks like another presentation topic!
