Off to Belize for BAAS 2015 and SCRAP 2015

Hi Everyone,

Well, I (Meaghan) am off to Belize tomorrow morning! I’m arriving early in order to meet with the Director of Archaeology this week to (hopefully) pick up the 2015 permit. Then, I am off to Stann Creek to finalize all our project arrangements.

Next week is the 2015 Belize Archaeology and Anthropology Symposium. The SCRAP presentation will be on Wednesday morning (see attached schedule). If you are in San Ignacio, come check it out!

Shawn Morton is finishing up his season in the Central Belize-Caves Branch region and will be joining us for the conference and then the SCRAP field season. Tawny Tibbits is already in the country, traveling around to test granite outcrops and artifacts. She will be meeting up with me at the end of this week for the quick prep-trip to Stann Creek. Lisa Green, Jesucita Guerra, and Brittany Johnson will be meeting up with the rest of the team at the BAAS, then we make our way out to Stann Creek on July 5th and are in the field on the 6th!

Keep checking back to our site for updates from the field!

I have added two of our conference papers to the site (see the “Presentations” tab), and will add our BAAS paper as soon as it has been presented.
