By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Institute of Archaeology (NICH) Belize is holding the Belize Archaeological Symposium (BAS) from July 29 to July 1 at the San Ignacio Hotel in San Ignacio, Cayo.

The three-day Belize Archaeological Symposium will feature 34 presentations which will concentrate on two themes: ‘Transformation, Transitional Expressions, and Adaptations during Critical Period of Ancient Maya Civilization’ and ‘Archaeology in Belize: Research Investigation Results’.

This year, the Institute of Archeology is observing the 18th anniversary of the annual BAS, which was on hold for two years – like everything else due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Researchers and their students have also shown great interest in having poster displays over the three days of the symposium,” said the Institute of Archaeology.

“The Belize Archaeology Symposium (BAS) is recognized as the leading source for current archaeological information in Belize. The IA continues to promote and foster research in areas such as Maya, Colonial, Underwater and Cave archeology as well as in the Archaic, Paleo-Indian, Historic periods in Belize.”

The Institute of Archaeology said the BAS is an avenue for archaeologists, students, tour guides, and other aficionados to discuss and exchange ideas on their current research and the latest developments in archaeology.
