8th Annual Maya at the Play September 25 – 28, 2014 – Flagler County, Florida
I attended this conference last year. It was extremely well-attended, so make your plans soon. Conference leader, Mat Saunders, has assembled another stellar line up of speakers. Last year I enjoyed having lunch with honoree, Justin Kerr along with George and Melinda Stuart, David Freidel, and Marc Van Stone. I also learned a lot from Harri Kettunen and Marc Zender who conducted a day-long hieroglyphic workshop.
