Dr. Richard “Dick” Diehl will continue honoring the public archaeology mission of Dr. George Stuart by presenting the next Boundary End Virtual Lecture on July 15, 2020, at 6pm Eastern Time. The lecture, entitled La Mojarra, Veracruz: Stones, Scripts, and Failed Dreams of Glory, will be presented on YouTube Live, and include a Q&A session. A YouTube link will be posted a few days before the talk here and on our Facebook page.
Dr. Diehl will discuss the conception and process of the archaeological project he led at the site of La Mojarra in 1995. His talk will address some of the challenges of leading international research and his archaeological discoveries. While his team did not find a new hieroglyphic monument, they made several discoveries, including ceramic kilns, a very rare find in Mesoamerica.
Please mark your calendars and prepare for an entertaining foray into the archaeology of the Mexican Gulf Coast.
