Maya “Painted Pyramid” Reveals 1st Murals of Daily Life

Calakmul or Kalakmul is a major site in my historical fiction about the Mayan Queens of Palenque. These two cities were enemies and had numerous skirmishes, several depicted in my stories. The mural shown here is one of the finest in terms of color and details of clothing.

My books draw upon extensive research of scientific and indigenous perspectives, and are based upon archeological knowledge of Maya sites and historical persons.
