The Institute of Archaeology (IA)/NICH has postponed the Archaeology Fair that it was going to conduct on occasion of International Archaeology Day on Thursday, October 13, at Xunantunich Archaeological Reserve in San Jose Succotz in Cayo.

“The Archaeology Day Site Fair will be postponed for Thursday, October 27 due to weather conditions,” said IA/NICH on Tuesday in a social media post.

“We will be celebrating all things archaeology with various informative sessions and interactive games,” had said IA/NICH in promotion of the fair. And it’s still going to happen except that we’ll have to wait a little longer.

The one day-fair will start at 10:00 am on October 27 and will run until 3:00 pm. The fair will feature site tours, artifact displays, and informational booths showcasing the utility of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in archaeology research, Bioarchaeology, and epigraphy sessions to teach basic hieroglyphic reading and writing.

Frank Tzib and Jorge de Lion will make a presentation on Maya Writing plus the Sak Xikin team from Northern Belize will do a live display of a Pok ta Pok Maya game.
