“ Hidden in the Hills No Longer: LiDAR-Aided Survey in the Northern Maya Lowlands” by Dr. Kenneth Seligson, Assistant Professor, Department of Anthropology, California State University, Dominguez Hills

Event Details

Friday, February 5, 2021
12-1 p.m.
In this talk, Dr. Seligson will discuss the recent LiDAR-based findings in the Puuc region, focusing mainly on the large site of Muluchtzekel. The site was occupied from the Middle Preclassic Period (ca. 500 BCE) through the Terminal Classic Period (ca. 950 CE) and its location straddling two ecozones suggests served as a trade hub between two sub-regions.
