The most recent publication of the archaeologist Ricardo Agurcia, was officially launched in Tegucigalpa this weekend.

The book entitled “Copan Kingdom of the Sun” is the fruit of extensive research compiled by the author and archaeologist, who for over thirty years has been dedicated to the study of the cultural heritage of Copan.

Thanks to its useful content, the text will serve as a source of information for those seeking some interesting facts about the Mayan culture, considered the most important of Mesoamerica.

Agurcia is recognized for his discovery of the temple Rosalila, and his research work in the temple Oriole, where it is believed the remains lie of one of the first rulers of Copan.
