LARC “Boomtown in Ancient Belize:  The Archeology of Rapid Growth in the Mayan World”

Calgary’s boom-bust cycles are far from new or unique, as Dr. Meaghan Peuramaki-Brown well knows.

Dr. Peuramaki-Brown is an anthropological archaeologist with Athabasca University and the U of C’s Latin American Research Centre (LARC).

Looking through an ancient lens, she researches how historic Mayan households and communities in Belize and Mexico experienced rapid urban growth.

She will introduce us to a Mayan boomtown in Belize, Central America dating back to 750-900 AD and explain why its rapid growth occurred and how it was sustained.
