The Unknown Codex


After the destruction of many of the Maya ancient books in 1652 by Bishop Diego de Landa in Mani, Yucatan it was believed only a handful of authentic documents survived; the Dresden Codex, Paris Codex, Madrid Codex and Grolier Codex. However, in the mid 1900’s an unknown codex appeared and was written about by Domingo Martinez Peredes, a Maya scholar from Motul, Yucatan. In this session Miguel Angel will share images from the Unknown Codex and introduce you to some to the writings from Domingo Martinez.
