I created this map to show the mainland of Belize, the locations of the location of Maya ruins, and the wildlife found in the rainforest of Central America. This map started as a companion map to the Ambergris Caye Chart; it soon took off with energy of its own, and gave me the incurable archaeological bug.
I wanted to know the meaning of a few glyphs, to use as markers for Maya ruins scattered across the country. That quest led me to Herman Smith, an Archaeologist living and working in Belize. Herman loaned me reference books: and soon I was so hooked, on studying the artwork and hieroglyphs of the Maya people, that I thought Id never finish the map. And at moments, I didn't want to finish it; when I wasnt studying Mayan hieroglyphs, I was sitting in the jungle or at the Belize zoo, sketching wildlife.
