HEAD OUT ON YOUR
NEXT ADVENTURE DECEMBER 4 - 12, 2021
Maya Field Workshops takes curious travelers to the heart of the Maya world
Our 2021 Focus:
Wars of the Lower Usumacinta
This December will visit the sites of Piedras Negras, Palenque, Pomona, Comalcalco and a few other stops along the way and learn about the ancient conflicts in the region. Compared to past trips this will be a relatively civilized experience. No camping, wonderful hotels, and the ability to concentrate on learning in the field. If you want to add time on your own before or after the workshop, Villahermosa has fantastic parks and museums to visit.
Learning on Site with David Stuart
Maya Field Workshops started over ten years ago when David Stuart and his sister Ann Stuart wanted to bring a group of curious travelers to the heart of the Maya world. Not just a "tour bus" experience, Maya Field Workshops teach you on the very sites where ancient royalty carved texts about their storied dynastic history. Since its beginnings Maya Field Workshops have hosted travelers in Guatemala, Honduras, Belize and many parts of Mexico.
David and Ann grew up in a unique family- their father, Dr. George Stuart, was a cartographer and Americas editor for the National Geographic Society while his mother produced and authored many National Geographic books for youth and adult audiences around the world. David is a National Geographic Society Exploration Grant recipient and has been featured in many articles for the National Geographic magazine. David's academic research has literally formed a significant part of our understanding of Maya hieroglyphic art and writing, and he has been recognized worldwide for his contributions. He is the youngest recipient of the Macarthur Foundation "genius" award, a Guggenheim Foundation fellow, Unesco award recipient, and many other distinctions. He currently teaches and runs the Mesoamerica Center at The University of Texas at Austin as the Linda and David Schele Chair in the Art and Writing of Mesoamerica.
