  1. Dave,
    What Steve found is incredible and will re write our understanding of the Maya. It is a great life changing discovery, especially the textiles. I met Steve years ago when he was first at Yale, with Mike, but now I guess his mind is spinning as a Mayanist. I’m sure you feel the same as many of us.
