New site--Architecture, restoration, and imaging of Maya sites

From: Charles Rhyne <crhyne<-a>
Date: Thursday, April 3, 2008
I have just posted an in-depth web site on a World Heritage Site,
tracing restoration over the years.

   "Architecture, Restoration, and Imaging of the Maya Cities of
    Uxmal, Kabah, Sayil and Labna, the Puuc Region, Yucatan Mexico"


This web site provides some 250 19th and early 20th century
drawings, prints, and photographs, most rare or previously
unpublished, revealing how these Maya sites were imaged by early
explorers and scholars.

There are also over 1000 recent photographs with descriptive
captions, many recording information not previously available in
print or on the web. These may be opened side-by-side, making
possible comparison of these sites before and after the extensive
restoration campaigns of the 20th century.

There is an extensive annotated bibliography
