Dr. Jeffrey Glover, Assistant Professor in the GSU Anthropology Department, received an $80,000 award from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office of Ocean Exploration and Research (OER) to fund the Maritime Maya Project 2011.
As Dr. Glover explains,
“The Maritime Maya Project is part of the larger Proyecto Costa Escondida (PCE), which began in 2006 under the direction of Dominique Rissolo [Executive Director, Waitt Institute] and me. Our goal, archaeologically speaking, is to gain a better understanding of how the Maya of the north coast of the modern Mexican state of Quintana Roo adapted to this coastal environment over the millennia and how they were linked-in to broader circum-peninsular trade routes.”
