dc.description.abstractThe second edition of the book by archaeologist Ivan Šprajc, a considerably enlarged version of the first edition published in 2009, is a first-person narrative of his explorations in the Maya area. Written by a distinguished expert and published in German in 2015, with an English translation currently in press in the USA, it is an adventurous story presenting in a reader-friendly way the incidents, difficulties, dangers, and triumphs experienced by an archaeologist in the tropical forest of southeastern Mexico. The thematically rounded episodes following the chronological order of Sprajc's expeditions include interesting information about the life of the ancient Maya, about their settlements, economy, social order, religious life, politics, and the emergence, development, and collapse of their civilization, as well as about the lives of their modern descendants, the technological advances of archaeology, and Mexico's concern for cultural heritage. The book is equipped with an overview map and a wealth of photographic material.Publication of this book was made possible by generous gifts from Slovenian supporters of Šprajc’s expeditions: Abanka, Ars longa, Adria kombi, and National Geographic Slovenia (Rokus Klett Publishing House).

oapen.abstract.otherlanguageDruga izdaja knjige arheologa dr. Ivana Šprajca je prvoosebna pripoved o raziskovanju na območju Majev v jugovzhodni Mehiki do leta 2014. Za skoraj tretjino razširjena knjiga uglednega strokovnjaka, ki je leta 2009 prvič izšla v slovenščini in bila kasneje prevedena v nemščino, v tisku pa je tudi angleška izdaja, je pustolovska pripoved, v kateri se vrstijo berljive dogodivščine, težave, nevarnosti in zmagoslavja, kot jih doživlja arheolog v tropskem gozdu. V zaokroženih epizodah, ki kronološko sledijo Šprajčevim odpravam, je nanizana tudi vrsta zanimivih podatkov o življenju nekdanjih Majev – o naseljih, gospodarstvu, družbeni ureditvi in verskem življenju, o politiki in dinastični zgodovini, o nastanku, razvoju in propadu. Kot tudi o tehnološkem napredku arheologije, življenju sedanjih prebivalcev teh območij in skrbi Mehike za kulturno dediščino. Knjiga je opremljena s preglednim zemljevidom in bogatim fotografskim gradivom.
