The Ancient Future: Mesoamerican and Andean Timekeeping

by sarahkburke

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the images to be included in our fall library exhibit, “The Ancient Future: Mesoamerican and Andean Timekeeping.”  This exhibit is timed to coincide with the Pre-Columbian Studies symposium on The Measure and Meaning of Time in the Americas (more details here) and is curated by Bridget Gazzo, Librarian for Pre-Columbian Studies.  We’ll update this page with a link to the online exhibit, once it’s ready!  The exhibit is up on our Library Exhibitions Page.
