First Annual Tulane Maya Symposium and Workshop
November 1 - 3, 2002

Join archaeologists and epigraphers at Tulane University in New Orleans for an in-depth exploration of current excavations and decipherments from the Yucatan Peninsula.  Saturday will feature a series of lectures on topics ranging from astronomy in the Maya codices, new discoveries at Mayapán, and astronomical orientations in site planning and architecture.

The program for Sunday will include a choice of hands-on workshops for those interested in learning how to read Maya hieroglyphs, understand the calendar, interpret imagery in the Maya codices, or decipher astronomical tables written hundreds of years prior to European contact.  Workshops will be offered for beginners and for those who have some background working with Maya texts and the calendar. 


Schedule

The Maya Symposium and Workshop will open with a keynote address by Merle Greene Robertson on Friday, November 1st, at 7pm in the Woldenberg Art Center.  The opening keynote address will be free and open to the public. Please click on titles for abstracts and short bios of presenters.
