The Boundary End Center is delighted to announce a Hieroglyphic Workshop – Maya on the Mountain: The Inscriptions of Cobá – led by David Stuart and slated for April 22-24.
Cobá — a site located in modern Quintana Roo, Mexico — has played an important role for BEC. George Stuart lived there from 1974-75 with his wife Gene and his children, including Ann and David Stuart; an experience which shaped David’s passion for the ancient Maya.
This immersive workshop will explore the many monuments of Cobá and their epigraphic content, including several recent advancements. The workshop will take place in the Annex: the educational facility created by George and located next to the Center’s library (see photo). The workshop will provide plenty of opportunities to visit and use the library and its resources.
The fee of $600 includes 2 days of workshop, 2 nights of comfortable lodging, a dinner reception, and breakfasts and lunches (more info below). All profits will go towards improving the BEC infrastructure.
Maya on the Mountain is conveniently slated before Maya at the Lago (April 25-27) in nearby Davidson.
The event will begin on the evening of Monday the 22, when a dinner reception will be held in the BEC library (George’s former library).
