If you are going to the Maya Meetings next week, drop me a line. Vicki and I would love to see all our Maya Field Workshop buddies! I’ll be there for the workshops on Wednesday and Thursday as well as the Symposium. There’s another great lineup for this year’s Maya Meetings at the University of Texas at Austin. I’ve been going for many years since my first one in 1984. Here are some of the featured topics and speakers. You can still register here. (The glyph you see, is the Dos Pilas toponym or place name.)
