Meetings of The Pre-Columbian Society

Meetings are held on the second Saturday of the month during the academic year (September to June). Meetings begin at 1:30 pm and are followed by refreshments and informal discussion. The Glyph Group usually meets at 10 am throughout the year. We schedule occasional offsite trips, including museums or exhibitions, which may take place outside of our regular meeting dates or times.

Meetings are usually held at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Directions

The next meeting will be held on Saturday March 10, 2018 at Penn Museum in Room 345. Thomas H. Guderjan, PhD, Professor of Anthropology, Chair, Department of Social Sciences, Director, Center for Social Science Research, Univeristy of Texas at Tyler; President, Maya Research Program, will be the speaker. He will give a morning workshop at 10 am and a talk at 1:30 pm on the topic "How the use of LIDAR survey impacts the understanding of production systems and land tenure at a site in Belize."
