The information on this website are just my musings and speculations. They should in no way be considered as the final word. Until an Angel declares from heaven where the hill is then we can not really know. All we can do is speculate. There are enough internal clues in the Book of Mormon to show us the general ball park that we should be looking in for the Hill Cumorah.
I believe that by placing the Book of Mormon in its correct geographical context, a greater appreciation of the symbolism and meaning can be elicited. As a student of anthropology and archaeolgy, I believe that the archeology of Mesoamerica can shed light on the Book of Mormon. With the decipherment of the Mayan language, the history of the area is now being written. Some of the most important things described on the Mayan stelae could have a direct bearing on the political situation in the Book of Mormon.
This site will be divided into 4 main sections. The 1st deals with my attempt to translate the names in the Book of Mormon into Mayan. More particularly, Cho'lan, as that is the language that the stelae were carved using.
My Aim in translating the names into Mayan was that I believed that there would be traces left in the names of the Book of Mormon of the origonal language. I chose Mayan to start with as it is the language that has been studied the most. It is my long term aim to try to translate the Book of Mormon into the languages of the pre-classic and early classic period, Zapotec, Ithsimian and Mixe-zokean.
The 2nd section will be my attempt to try to work out a map of the Book of Mormon, in line with Clarke's statements that a real-world correllation cannot be achieved until an internal map is drawn.
The 3rd section will be my attempt to work out the logistics of feeding the population that resided at Cumorah at the time of the final battle.
The 4th section will be a links page to places where those who come to the site can research for themselves what I am proposing.
