“How the Maya Shaped Their World” provides context for the volume and describes its origins in the 14th Annual Tulane Maya Symposium, which took place in 2017 and was organized around the theme “Monumental Landscapes: How the Maya Shaped their World.” Rather than compelling authors to adhere to a single definition of monumental and a traditional concept of landscape, the editors asked the authors to creatively answer the question, “What does monumental landscape mean to you in the context of your research into the ancient Maya?” The chapter introduces the three sections of the volume—natural and built landscapes, political and economic landscapes, and ritual and sacred landscapes—and summarizes each chapter.
