Maya Research

One of the world's few remaining biodiversity hotspots, environmental archaeology is particularly well-suited to the geographic region once occupied by the ancient Maya. Kitty Emery and her students have been involved in a number of projects that examine how this complex society made use of its natural environment, examining such diverse topics as the origin and spread of agriculture, the deforestation of natural habitats, and the ritual and economic significance of animal species.

Below are some of the recent projects EAP researchers have been involved with:
