Pal-GroupAtopTempleCrossMaya Field Workshops introduce you to the exciting world of Maya archaeology through intensive and fun on-site seminars led by renowned archaeologist David Stuart. We emphasize learning and culture over quick tourism, concentrating our time on learning the archaeology, history and art of single Maya archaeolgical sites or regions. There's no intellectual experience quite like Maya Field Workshops in the world of archaeological travel. We take care of everything from when you land at the airport until your departure, so all you have to do is relax and learn - not to mention meet great people, eat delicious food and have lots of fun!
