Archeologists and historians from all over the country and beyond gathered in San Ignacio this week for the 16th Annual Belize Archaeology Symposium.

NICH hosted the three-day event at the San Ignacio Hotel under the theme “From the Early Formative to the Postclassic in Central Belize: Challenges to the Narratives of Ancient Maya Civilization”.

The event featured presentations on various aspects of Maya civilization and talks from renowned names in the field of archaeology.

At the event, Dr. John Morris, director of the Institute of Archaeology, stressed that archeology is important not only for the valuable research on the ancient Maya but also for the preservation and conservation of the historic cited because of their economic value to Belize through the tourism industry.

“Belize is at the forefront of ancient Maya studies and many important, thought-provoking papers have been produced by research conducted in this country,” Morris said.

The event also coincided with the opening of the Crooked Tree Museum and Cultural Heritage Centre Grand Opening, where Morris also gave the keynote address.
