Ancient Maya Mathematics and Culture in the Yucatan

Ancient Maya Mathematics and Culture
Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico

May 21-27, 2011

Led by Dr. Michael Grofe

This course is designed for participants all ages and varying levels of knowledge to learn about ancient Maya history, culture, and mathematics as they travel through the ruins of the Yucatan Peninsula. Day trips to the ruins of Coba, Chichen Itza and Ek Balam will be complimented by evening lectures about how the Maya calendar works and the latest discoveries in ancient Maya astronomy.

Dr. Grofe is a foremost authority on ancient Maya astronomy with cutting edge research regarding the evidence for an ancient understanding of the 26,000 year cycle of precession.  His vast knowledge of Maya astronomy, mathematics, and hieroglyphics will make this course an unparalleled learning experience.

A cancellation from one of our partner universities has led to openings in the course and a special offer for last minute sign ups.  If you join the course at this late date, you'll receive a 2011 MEC Research Membership, which includes access to JSTOR, a 2011 Mayan Calendar, and 10% off all of our travel courses (including this one) and educations tours throughout the year.
