Exactly one year ago we at Yucatán Magazine published the first in what would become a series of archaeology articles called Archaeology Monday.
This first article on the ancient site of Dzibilchaltún made a big impact on our readers, who promptly began to ask for more.
As time went on, the articles started to become longer and more in-depth — covering archaeological sites large and small across Yucatán, southeastern Mexico, and Central America.
Although most content on Archaeology Monday has focused on Maya archaeological sites, we have also explored several non-Maya sites, such as the famed city of Teotihuacán and Cacaxtla — a trend which we will be continuing.
Yucatán Magazine is now excited to announce tours and trips to some of Mexico’s most impressive archaeological sites — led by yours truly.
It had been our hope to schedule the first of these trips to either Southern Campeche‘s Calakmul Biosphere or the Usumacinta region in Chiapas this Feb, but given the rise in COVID-19 infections, this does not seem likely.
Nevertheless, we will keep you all posted regarding scheduling and destinations.
On a personal note, it has been tremendously satisfying to share my love of Meso-American archaeology with Yucatán Magazine’s readers, and hope to continue to have the opportunity to do so long into the future.
Keep exploring and stay posted!
