Impressive archaeological sites in the Yucatan, such as Chichen Itza, Uxmal, and Tulum are by far the most frequently visited of all ancient Maya ruins, but they are also among the least understood, from a scholarly perspective. Having been turned into "archaeological parks" many decades ago, these sites have not been available for intensive archaeological study as might otherwise have been possible. Much new work has, however, been done, and new light is being shed on how these sites fit into the overall story of the evolution of Maya culture in the Yucatan. The three classes will survey the major ancient sites in the context of the unique environment of the Yucatan.
