The Maya Archaeology and Ecology field program offers a multidisciplinary approach to the study of rainforest ecology and Maya cultural heritage. The students then participate in a unique field program, which is integrated with the Yaxnohcah Archaeological Project, located in the Calakmul Biosphere, a protected area of pristine rainforest, Mexico.
During your 14 days in the field you will conduct on-site field research with teams of investigators from Canada, Mexico and the US. This trip offers the unique opportunity to work with cutting edge technology as the researchers digitally record tangible archeological heritage and integrate remote sensing technologies with on-the-ground investigations of the rainforest ecosystem.
