Alfred Percival Maudslay was a diplomat who on retirement carried out eight self-financed expeditions between 1881 and 1894 to locate and research the Mayan archaeological sites of Copán, Quirigua, Menche (Yaxchilán), Chichen Itza and Palenque in Mexico and Central America. Maudslay and his assistants photographed the monuments and made paper and plaster casts of sculptures and inscriptions. Some of his texts and photographs were included in the Biologia Centrali-Americana, or Contributions to the Knowledge of the Flora and Fauna of Mexico and Central America (1899-1902) by Ducane Godman and Osbert Salvin.
He photographed the Quirigua, Guatemala, archaeological site in 1883.
