Inaugural Blog: Dolores Museum and Venus Today in the Dresden Codex

Welcome to our first blog post in which we bring you a corpus of monumental inscriptions from southeast Petén that is currently on display at the Juan Pedro Laporte Museum in Dolores, Petén, and a new contribution by Uguku Usdi of Corcoran State Prison, California, which demonstrates that the Dresden Codex Venus table is still current in today’s world some 900 years after it was written. We trust you will find these useful contributions to the field of Mesoamerican studies.
