A team of Mexican archaeologists will carry out research in five pre-Columbian cities of the state of Yucatan, with a budget of approximately $15 million pesos ($883,000 USD) for 2016, a delegate of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) Yucatán, Eduardo Lopez Calzada, announced.
He said the experts, mostly Yucatecan, will be working mainly at Chichen Itza, Dzibilchaltun, Ek Balam, Izamal and Mayapan, according to the Government of Yucatan.
He clarified that the amount received is similar to this year’s, unless there is an increase for archaeological studies and other type of research conducted by the institution. But so far, the integrated continuity projects to be approved for 2016, will be developed in these pre-Hispanic cities.
Lopez Calzada mentioned activities such as site maintenance, restoration of monuments, museology, exhibitions, private ceramic and anthropology investigations, as well as dealing with complaints.
The delegate underlined the importance of the work to be done, but acknowledged that this will only take place in five of the more than two thousand archaeological sites in the Yucatan atlas.
He said that, during this year, considerable research activities were carried out. And finally he announced that this coming Monday December 7th, the twentieth death anniversary of Victor Segovia Pinto archaeoastronomer will be commemorated at the Department of Anthropology of the Autonomous University of Yucatan (UADY); while the second Mayan Culture Symposium “Ichkaantijoo” will be held at the INAH Yucatan Library.
