Review "Collection defines current state of Mayan skeletal studies. Coverage spans the formative through colonial periods, with a geographic focus on the Maya lowlands of northern Guatemala, Belize, and western Honduras. Includes osteological, dental, bone chemistry, and DNA analyses. Diet and health status of Maya populations is a major theme, especially in relation to social status, gender, and the historical problem of the 'collapse.'"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57. http://www. loc. gov/hlas/
