Did the ancient Maya maintain royal courts? What evidence should archaeologists look for to decide if royal courts existed or not, and to determine how such courts functioned? Examining the art, architecture and archaeology of the Maya metropolis of Tikal, especially the Central Acropolis - and drawing on analogies with the courts of Louis XIV at Versailles and the Inka at Cusco, Peter Harrison provides insights into the workings and human make-up of Maya elites and their residences.
