Follow the Penn Museum Blog and get behind-the-scenes stories about the making of MAYA 2012.

Follow Rosa, Miranda, and Emily, the Penn student team on their journey to Copan and back. We are the student team working with the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archeology and Anthropology’s Maya 2012: Lords of Time exhibition. Throughout the semester we meet with Dr. Loa Traxler, the curator, to assist in the coming-together of the exhibition. Three of us have gone down to Copan where we are assisting with the documentation and packaging of the objects that will be coming from Honduras to Pennsylvania. This blog is a space to record our individual projects and share with the public a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes development of the exhibition.
