Lords of Time, the Maya, and 2012

Implementation of a traveling exhibition, a podcast guide, online resources, educational materials, and a publication on the ancient and modern Maya concepts of time, based on recent archaeology findings at Copán.

In May 2012, the Penn Museum will present the traveling exhibition, Lords of Time, the Maya and 2012 -- an innovative exploration of the ancient and modern Maya and their conceptions of time. The exhibition will include over 75 archaeological artifacts and groups, stone sculpture, historical materials, modern reproductions, digital media components, and interactive displays to actively engage visitors in the discovery of an ancient culture, as well as its legacy to the modern world. Themes of the exhibition will span the fields of astronomy, history, archaeology, anthropology, and comparative culture studies. The exhibition is a formal collaboration between the Penn Museum, the Honduran government's Instituto Hondureo de Antropologia e Historia (IHAH), and Harvard University's Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology (Peabody). After its debut at the Penn Museum, the core of the exhibition will travel to other US venues through 2014.
