MAYA: Hidden Worlds Revealed lecture, workshop, and symposia series

"MAYA: Hidden Worlds Revealed" is a new collaborative series of lectures, workshops, and symposia held June through December 2013 in conjunction with the new exhibit at the MN Science Museum. The first lecture in the series will be this Friday, June 21st at 7:30pm at Hamilne in room 112 of the Anderson Student Center

This is a very special public program series cosponsored by the Maya Society, the Science Museum of MN, the U of M and Hamline Univ. The events are developed to coincide with the Museum's exciting new exhibit, "MAYA: Hidden Worlds Revealed." The exhibit opens on Friday, June 21st and it is really spectacular!
Many of the speakers scheduled for monthly lectures and workshops (click here to view the series flyer.) are consultants to the exhibit, as is Dr. Jaime Awe, Director of the Institute of Archaeology in Belize, who will speak this Friday evening at 7:30 at Hamline in room 112 of the new Anderson Student Center. Dr. Awe will speak on ritual use of Maya caves and possible increased use in response to climate change and the decline of Maya civilization in the 900s AD.
