Osterbrock Book Prize awarded to Harvey and Victoria Bricker

October 22nd, 2012

Tulane Professors Emeriti Victoria R. and Harvey M. Bricker have been awarded the 2013 Donald E. Osterbrock Book Prize of the Historical Astronomy Division of the American Astronomical Society for their book Astronomy in the Maya Codices. The Brickers’ work represents the culmination of their thirty years of collaborative research. Astronomy in the Maya Codices synthesizes the Brickers’ previous work and the work of other scholars in order to create a definitive volume on the topic of Maya astronomy. In doing so, it considers the information on astronomy contained in the Grolier, Paris, Madrid, and Dresden codices, as well as that recorded in the other remaining Maya codices and in Maya stone monuments and artwork.
