Free keynote talks for the Mesoamerican Conference—a symposium at the University of Utah
This is a rare opportunity to see two giants in Maya archaeology. Their work transformed our understanding of this ancient civilization.

Because of their work, we now understand that the pre-classic period included an advanced state-level civilization as sophisticated and advanced as the classic Maya period.
