Dr. Mark Van Stone, a leading expert on the Maya calendar and the significance of 2012, reads the story of a powerful Maya king on Quiriguá Stela D, a late Eighth Century stone monument in Guatemala. Not more than twenty years ago, no one would have been able to read the inscription on that Quirigua monument. The city’s story was a mystery, even to the Maya people of Guatemala today. Thanks to scholars like Dr. Mark Van Stone, the Maya now have a history.
