MAYA ARCHAEOLOGY SPRING BREAK TRIP PLANNED

MAYA ARCHAEOLOGY SPRING BREAK TRIP PLANNED

BRADFORD, Pa. -- The ninth Annual Maya Archaeology Spring Break Trip, which explores ancient Maya ruins each year, will take place from March 3 to March 10, 2012.

The trip will highlight Caracol, the enormous ancient Maya city deep in the mountains, and several other nearby sites such as Cahal Pech and Xunantunich, near the Guatemalan border. The trip will also include exploring a Maya ritual cave, and the Maya salt works of the Belizean islands at Bacalar Chico National Marine Park.

The $1,200 price of the trip includes hotels, two meals each day, van and water transportation, tours by archaeologists and botanists, and entrance fees to museums and sites. It does not include airfare to/from Belize City, Belize.

The trip is designed to appeal to anthropology, archaeology and environmental studies students, but the trip is open to anyone with an interest in the Maya, in archaeology, in tropical ecology, or in an adventuresome week, including children age 12 or older, if accompanied by a responsible parent.

Anyone interested in the trip should contact Isabelle Champlin, at (814) 362-7623 or ichamplin@gmail.com. This trip is not officially sponsored by the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. The deadline for signing up for the trip is Feb. 3, 2012. A detailed itinerary is available on the Maya Exploration Center website at http://www.mayaexploration.com/study_UPitt_mar12.php.

I hope they find the rest of that Mayan calendar on this trip so the world won't end next December.

Don't be an idiot..the Mayan calendar is round...so is a clock..but it keeps going round doesn't it? I was at Xunantunich and it was really cool...and by the way. The Mayans contrary to popular belief did not disappear. They will be there trying to sell you stuff (carved calendars!!lol)When you get to Xunantunich!!
