    Brown Bag Lecture Topic: The History of Chan Bhich Belize

    Speaker: Paisley Palmer

    I have just finished the first year of my master’s program at New Mexico State University.  I am focusing on isotope analysis on deer bones from the Yucatan Peninsula with Dr. Rani Alexander.  I am investigating environmental depression, deer domestication, and hierarchy at the time of the Maya collapse. 

    This summer I am working my fourth season at Chan Chich Belize with the Chan Chich Archaeological Project.  This is a long-term occupancy site right on the border of Belize and Guatemala.  I will be presenting the history of Chan Chich, and findings from the last four years along with what that means for the site.  My focus this year is chronology of the Upper Plaza.  The Upper Place houses elite structures, along with the largest building in the site.  This is the location of a known king’s burial found in 1997, along with other high quality artifacts.  This is a beautiful Classic Maya site with a rich history to be explored.

    • Southeastern New Mexico

    DESTINATION: We will visit a landscape of ghosts, including the spectacular scenery of the Black Range, the Aldo Leopold Wilderness, and a restricted area of the White Sands Missile Range. When Mexico ceded the southwest to the United States in 1848 the Chiricahua Apache, among them the Warm Springs Apache, struggled heroically to preserve their centuries-old way of life from incursions from miners, ranchers, farmers, as well as the US military sent to protect them. The Warm Springs Apache were ultimately forced onto reservations in Oklahoma, where their descendants live today. We will explore the scenes of this conflict: the ancestral homeland of the Chihende (Red People), or Warm Springs band of the Chiricahua, including visits to a major battlefield site, the Battle of Hembrillo Basin, and the remains of the mining towns and camps that displaced the Apache and then themselves were abandoned.
