Field school/volunteering oppertunity in Blue Creek, Belize.

I'm not sure if this is allowed, and if not I'll take it down with my most sincere apologies, but I'd like to pimp this awesome field school for those of you seeking college credit and a great digging experience this summer!

Maya Research Program is a US based non-profit corporation that sponsors archaeological and ethnographic work in Middle America ( Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico ).

Since 1992, research at the Maya center of Blue Creek has been MRP's flagship effort. Blue Creek was a wealthy polity with large monumental architecture. We have excavated much of the public and residential architecture, discovered one of the Maya area's largest caches of jade, and found a large-scale ancient agricultural system.

The staff at Blue Creek includes professors from the University of Texas at Tyler, Georgetown University and George Mason University and graduates from many other universities. Volunteers aged 14-81 have from all over the world have dug at Blue Creek. It's a great learning experience for anyone interested in Maya archaeology!
