|In 1990 the Institute began participation in long-term, multi-institutional excavations at the site of Copan, Honduras. The focus of the Tulane project is the Late Classic royal residential area that lies immediately south of the Acropolis. Eighteen graduate students from Tulane and several from other universities have supervised these excavations. Copan research has provided dissertations for several Tulane students.|
