Have you ever wondered what the regular folks were doing when the important kings and priests were building pyramids and carving stelae in ancient MesoAmerica? On Oct. 17, the public is invited to hear archaeologist David Hyde share insights about the non-urban, non-elite Maya culture at the Colorado Archaeological Society, Chipeta Chapter meeting. He will present an overview of excavations and research based on his ongoing research in a study area at Medicinal Trails, Belize. Dr. Hyde has been a professor of archaeology at Western State Colorado since 2011 and has conducted studies across the western U.S.
The meeting is at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 17, at the Montrose United Methodist Church, 19 S. Park Street, Montrose. For more information contact Leigh Ann Hunt, 970-835-5228.
