Lords of the Life Force and Their People

Reflections on Ritual Violence and Reverence in the Maya Archaeological Record

(p.270) 12 Lords of the Life Force and Their People
Ritual, Violence, and the Fall of the Classic Maya Kings

David Freidel

University Press of Florida

This summary chapter reviews regicide as practiced by some ancient Maya in the Classic Period and considers themes reviewed in the preceding chapters. It is especially notable that many of the contributors to this volume are working with archeological contexts lacking significant hieroglyphic inscriptions referencing kingship or violence. Nevertheless these archaeologists successfully address the archaeological patterns in evidence relevant to these themes.
