Wed, September 15, 2010 • 6:00 PM • ART 1.110
Join us at this first US public presentation of a major discovery by UT LLILAS graduate student Edwin Román, co-director of Proyecto El Zotz. Román will speak about his experience excavating the tomb this summer and share a number of unpublished artifacts from this extraordinary archaeological find. Among the objects recovered are finely painted ceramics, jade, and obsidian as well as organic materials that are rarely preserved. The Early Classic tomb is considered to be one of the greatest Maya discoveries in recent history.
