Origins of Maya Civilization Examined at Aguada Fénix, Mexico
with Takeshi Inomata, PhD, University of Arizona
Saturday, June 3, 2023, 11:00 am – Arizona Time
The talk will discuss recent findings from the site of Aguada Fénix, Mexico, which was discovered in 2018.
Its central platform, which measures 1400 x 400 m horizontally and 10-15 m in height and was built around 1000 BC, is the largest and oldest monumental building in the Maya area.
The results of investigations at this site are changing our understanding of how the Maya civilization and surrounding societies developed.
Takeshi Inomata, PhD, is a professor at the School of Anthropology, University of Arizona.
He has been investigating social changes in the Maya area through field projects at Aguateca and Ceibal in Guatemala and in the Middle Usumacinta region of Mexico.
