Mayapedia: a holding tank of reminders, links, quotes, excerpts, and media related to what we’re learning about Maya culture, some of which may be of interest to you.
In order to have the complete record of the Maya culture in topics such as archeology, epigraphy, ethnology, history and physical anthropology, among others, the Mayapedia project will be promoted in Yucatan and worldwide.
“The initiative seeks to make up a website that houses information about this ancient civilization”, reported a spokesmen of the Board of Cultural and Tourism Units of Yucatan (Cultur) and the Center for Mayan Studies Yuri Knórosov (Cemyk), who perform the work for the realization Of the same.
“This platform will concentrate the publications that specialists and the academy carry out in different spaces, which is why, in many cases, it remains unknown to the public. All this data will be accessible to researchers and the general public,” said the director general of Cultur, Mauricio Díaz Montalvo, and the head of Cemyk, Galina Ershova.
“It’s like Wikipedia, but focused on the Maya culture and language, with the difference that those involved are scientists and researchers with wide recognition in the world, from different countries such as Russia, Spain, the United States, Germany, Guatemala and Mexico,” said Diaz Montalvo.
As part of the tasks of linking, it was reported that Cemyk keeps the invitation open to universities and research centers to send their contributions. At the moment, Mayapedia, as it is a project designed by the Yuri Knórosov center, exists only in Russian, but the versions in Spanish and English are already being prepared.
