Cuello in Belize
Norman Hammond's exploration of the site of Cuello in Belize, in 1979/1980
Norman Hammond is Professor Emeritus of Archaeology at Boston University, Associate in Maya Archaeology at the Peabody Museum, Harvard University and a Senior Fellow at Cambridge University. He is speaking at universities throughout New Zealand this month, about the ancient city of La Milpa in northwestern Belize – one of the Maya cities most recently investigated by archaeologists. Its rapid rise, sudden fall, and complex urban structure have shed new light on the precariousness of Maya existence.
