Description

Did the Maya really predict that the world would end in 2012, or is this apocalyptic prediction of wholly Western origin? Brodman’s talk will examine the evidence for this prediction in the writings and images of the ancient Maya to determine whether or not they predicted the death of the world or its continued life.
