Maya Field Workshops are not a week-long traveling tour. Rather, it is an intensive intellectual and cultural experience rooted in one place, allowing you a unique and direct hands-on experience with ancient Maya civilization.
David Stuart, the leader of our workshops and classes, has been a key player in the decipherment of Maya hieroglyphs. He is the Schele Professor of Mesoamerican Art and Writing at UT-Austin, and is recipient of a MacArthur Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship. David is the author or co-author of many important books on Maya culture and history, and is now actively working with many field projects in the Maya area.
Maya 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 archaeological 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!
