The country of Belize (formerly British Honduras) is currently a top tourist destination for North Americans, and is consistently ranked as one of the top destinations for “Adventure Tourism.” The draw of the country includes its many Maya archaeological sites, seemingly pristine jungle environments, beach and caye locales, and the official English language.
The Maya Archaeology in Belize Field Program represents an excellent opportunity for archaeology and anthropology students to develop or extend their field experience through practice in archaeological field techniques within a working archaeological site. Students will be integrated into the on-going research of the Stann Creek Regional Archaeology Project (SCRAP); a unique chance to meet and work alongside associated investigators while experiencing a Maya site before large-scale excavations and restoration have taken place. Along with instruction and practice in field procedures and techniques, this program will involve in-field lectures and field trips to Maya archaeological sites and other attractions in the region.
In addition to the two main course offerings, students will have the opportunity to enroll in an independent readings/study course (ARKY 597, ANTH 402/404. LAST 501) to conduct further research regarding a topic of interest related to Maya archaeology or Belizean culture.
