Prof. Michael Coe, an expert on the Maya, discusses
the challenges facing Mormon archaeologists investigating the historical truth of the Book of Mormon.
The Maya lived in parts of Mexico and Central American where Mormon scholars say the events in the Book of Mormon took place. Coe is the Charles J. MacCurdy professor emeritus of Anthropology at Yale University and curator emeritus of the Division of Anthropology at the school’s Peabody Museum of Natural History.
The pod-casts are 3 hours long. PBS also did a series
on the Mormons.
