Abstract: Paynes Creek, Belize, Mayan Site
Lecturer: Heather McKillop
This lecture will examine the site of the submerged Mayan city at Paynes Creek National Park in Belize, where wooden structures (the only known for the Classic Maya) have been perfectly preserved underwater. This site received an AIA Site Preservation Grant to protect the area and to educate tourists and residents about it. A description of the site and the grant proposal can be seen at http://www.archaeological.org/projects/paynescreekbelize.
