The Stuart Collection and other holdings in the Rare Book Collection of UNC-Chapel Hill tell the story of European peoples’ discovery of Maya sites and Maya languages and literary traditions, alongside the dramatic political history of the region and the Maya struggle for autonomy.

This exhibit is hosted in conjunction with the “13 Bak’tun: New Maya Perspectives in 2012” symposium.
