A publication of the Archaeological Institute of America
Scholars Honor Linda Schele
More than 50 students and colleagues
gathered for a three-day tribute to University of Texas epigrapher Linda
Schele, whose work has broadened our understanding of the ancient Maya.
Last summer, the 56-year-old Mayanist, whose coauthored books include Blood
of Kings, Forest of Kings, Maya Cosmos,and the forthcoming Code
of Kings,was diagnosed with inoperable cancer and given little more
than a year to live. Friends and colleagues are raising funds for a chair
in Schele's name at the University of Texas; for information, e-mail Peter
Keeler at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
