Dear Section Members,

Lamanai is a Maya archaeological site in northern Belize on the New River Lagoon. Work there is directed by Professor Elizabeth Graham. In 2015 we are concentrating on organisation of the artefacts in the Old Museum and preparing the pottery and small finds for conservation.  Our goal in 2015-16 is to apply for grants to aid conservation efforts and facilitate on-site access to collections for local and foreign tourists, as well as for the local community of Indian Church. IoA students this season cleaned and organised the small finds, reconstructed pottery vessels, illustrated finds and prepared the artefacts for conservation.
