“Cenotes and the Watery Underworld of the Yucatan Peninsula” – Fabio Esteban Amador, Ph.D.
“The cenotes and submerged cave systems of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico represent a promising frontier for archaeological research. They provide glimpses of a unique and virtually unknown underworld, which contains evidence of human activity stretching back thousands of years.
This presentation will focus on the fascinating world of cave archaeology in the lowlands of the Yucatan Peninsula. It will also reveal new evidence for Paleo-Indian occupation which may be the earliest in the Americas. Exciting innovative imaging and sampling techniques will be featured in this richly illustrated talk.
Fabio Esteban Amador is the Program Officer for the National Geographic Society/Waitt Grants Program and an Associate Research Professor of Anthropology at George Washington University and a Research Associate at the Institute of Nautical Archaeology.”
