New Findings at Marco Gonzalez Mayan Site

Lots of interesting stuff taking place at the Marco Gonzalez Mayan Ruin Site, South Ambergris Caye, as current excavations are revealing very interesting findings. Very much exploited and damaged in the past, a new project is working on securing, preserving and bringing the Mayan Ruins back to life.

On Thursday, July 8, the board of Directors of the Marco Gonalez Mayan Site Project hosted a reception for tourism and education stakeholders of San Pedro to view artifacts from the site and meet the visiting archaeologists.

Miss Nadia Glassup from the University College London, England, working on her Master’s thesis conducted a four day exhibition of Marco Gonazlez artifacts and the importance of the island site.

Off to the site!

Ambergris Today also made a special trip to the site to see the workings of the university students and visiting archeologists. More on the great findings on Thursday’s edition of Ambergris Today.
