Please join us for our next Maya Field Workshop, to be held in Yucatan (for the first time) from May 28-June 4, 2011. We’ll be focusing on the inscriptions and archaeology of three very different but important sites, Coba, Ek Balam and Chichen Itza.
More details and registration information can be found on the Maya Field Workshops website.
Here’s the overview, from the MFW homepage:
As with our previous workshops in Palenque and Copán, participants will have direct hands-on learning and training in the art, archaeology and epigraphy of the Maya, led by well-known archaeologist and epigrapher Dr. David Stuart of the University of Texas at Austin. Yucatán is among the largest and most diverse of all ancient maya regions, with a rich history and culture now made accessible through deciphered texts and elaborate monumental art.
We’re looking forward to another fun and educational week in the field. Mornings will be spent on-site or in local museums, exploring the ruins in context and in detail. Lectures and workshops come each afternoon.
Our first Palenque and Copán workshops were hugely successful, and we anticipate more fun and intellectual excitement in Yucatán in June.
