Discover the Life and Trials of One of M.A.R.I.'s Early Directors, Frans Bloom


Featured Artifact


A new publication reveals the life and work of Frans Blom, M.A.R.I.'s second director (1926-1940). Often viewed as one of the last great archaeologist-explorers of Mesoamerica, Blom conducted pioneering work at major sites, including Palenque, Tonina, Uxmal, and Uaxactun.

Introducing a New Website Feature


Featured Artifact

Many of our student Interns and Volunteers are assisting with research on items found in the M.A.R.I. collections. In the process, they are discovering new favorites and creating educational material to introduce the general public to the collections!


Our new Featured Artifact section will periodically showcase their work. This month, we are highlighting a colorful object from Mexico and its associations to Day of the Dead celebrations!
