Chan Chich Archaeological Project

The Chan Chich Archaeological Project (CCAP) completed its seventh season of research at the ancient Maya city of Chan Chich in 2013. The 2013 season report is now available for download. The 2012 season report is also available for download! The updated site map is also available for download.

Looking forward to 2014, we have an ambitious research agenda that includes conducting pedestrian survey (i.e., walking through the jungle looking for sites) of existing seismic survey lines and logging roads, continuing excavations in the Upper Plaza to research the early dynastic architecture at the site, and preliminary investigations of the Back Plaza at Chan Chich (see this link for more information).

If you wish to support the 2014 season through a financial contribution to the project, you can do so by clicking this link. Any contribution is greatly appreciated and is tax deductible! Feel free to email Dr. Houk for more information about our plans for next season.

Read about the 2012 season in the College of Arts & Sciences Newsletter.
