Return to Tikal

The 21st Annual Maya Weekend at the University of Pennsylvania Museum focuses on the Museum’s excavations at Tikal, one of the largest and most important of all Maya cities. The weekend conference features the first public presentation of the Tikal Digital Access Project, which, when completed, will make an archive of more than half a million archaeological records accessible to scholars and Maya enthusiasts around the world. Of course, there’s also the usual smorgasbord of workshops and speakers, including many who participated in the Museum’s Tikal digs from 1956 to 1970.

The conference takes place April 4-6 at the Museum, 3260 South St. Registration $150, seniors with ID/ Museum members $120, students with ID $60. Info/registration: www.museum.upenn.edu/MayaWeekend, events@museum.upenn.edu or 215-898-4890.
