Additional Sources for the Ichmul de Morley Panels

Dear readers,

Shortly after publishing Research Contribution 9 (our latest blog), follower and supporter Karl-Herbert Mayer brought to our attention that Teobert Maler had visited Ichmul and photographed Panel 1 and Panel 2 in the late 19th and/or early 20 century, quite some time earlier than Sylvanus Morley. Thanks to Karl’s lead, and with Bill Ringle’s help, Maler’s photographs of the Ichmul panels have been found and are, in fact, available to download at https://digital.iai.spk-berlin.de/viewer/image/1049600878/1/LOG_0003/. Greg Smith’s revised Research Contribution 9 is now posted in place of the original.
