Dr. Kathryn Reese-Taylor

The Maya Archaeology and Ecology field program incorporates a multidisciplinary approach to the study of rainforest ecology and Maya cultural heritage. Students will study the development of the ancient Maya civilization and how these ancient people created large densely populated urban landscapes in a tropical environment. Additionally, students will examine the heritage and environmental resources of the Calakmul Biosphere, a protected area of pristine rainforest, through a variety of hands-on field and lab activities. 

This field school runs in Spring 2019. For more information about this program, please visit the Group Study Program. Students are strongly encouraged to attend the information session if intending to apply for this program.
