II Warsaw Maya Meeting is an expansion of a long standing tradition of Maya epigraphy course and the annual Maya Hieroglyphic Workshops held at the University of Warsaw under the auspices of the Centre for Precolumbian Studies and Institute of Archaeology of University of Warsaw in cooperation with the Institute of Anthropology and Archaeology of Americas of the University of Bonn. It is also a continuation for the first event the 2010 Warsaw Maya Meeting designed and organised by Jan Szymański.
The 2019 conference consists of two separate events: a symposium (8th of March) that focuses mainly on the archaeoastronomy and epigraphy, aiming to bridge the two separated disciplines, and an introductory workshop (9th of March) on methods of archaeoastronomy. The idea for this year’s theme comes from Nikolai Grube. The theme of the conference is not only rare and provides the venue for the highly needed meeting of Maya archaeostronomy and epigraphy, but also fits the Warsaw setting for this event. Warsaw was home to two great figures: prof. Elżbieta Siarkiewicz (who recently died in 2018), one of Poland’s first Mesoamericanists, whose one of the major research interest was Maya archaeoastronomy and archaeoastronomist and historian of astronomy Robert Sadowski (1947-2010), who conducted archaeoastronomical research and was as well succesful translator, who delivered to the Polish audience number of important books on Maya, Nahuatl and Archaeoastronomy.
