Description
Believed by many to be the "mother culture" from which the Mayan, Aztec, and other Mesoamerican cultures derived, the Olmecs are famous for the colossal heads they carved from giant boulders, first seen by the public in the 1940s in National Geographic. A leading authority on the Olmecs, archaeologist and anthropologist Richard Diehl has closely studied their culture since uncovering major Olmec sites and artifacts in the 1960s. Here he offers a detailed profile of this oldest-known civilization in the Americas, made possible by substantial discoveries in recent decades, with 20 color and 132 black and white illustrations.

"Master carvers and pyramid-builders on a grand scale, the enigmatic Olmec people created Mesoamerica's most ancient civilization. Richard Diehl has written the first truly complete and authoritative account of this 3,000-year-old culture, from its birth in the humid lowlands of Mexico's Gulf Coast, until its final extinction or transformation."ŚMichael D. Coe
