The Belizean Archaeology Symposium (BAS) is an annual event, held in San Ignacio, Cayo, that brings together researchers in one venue to share the latest findings on the archaeological work being done in Belize. The lectures presented cover the ground-breaking work being done across Belize, not only covering the ancient Maya, but the colonial/historic and preceramic as well.
This event brings together veteran researchers with a new generation of archaeologists, along with many tour guides, students, and the general public all interested in learning more about the rich cultural history that Belize has.
It runs for 3 days, being from the 27-29 of June 2018. While many general papers in archaeology will be presented, this year’s special topic is:
FROM THE EARLY FORMATIVE TO THE POSTCLASSIC IN CENTRAL BELIZE: CHALLENGES TO THE NARRATIVES OF ANCIENT MAYA CIVILIZATION.
