Maya at the Lago Presenter

Evan Parker is a PhD candidate in the Department of Anthropology at Tulane University. His dissertation research focuses on the intersection of inequality, sport, and ritual in the Northern Maya Lowlands during the Middle Preclassic period (1000-350 BC).

As a member of the Bolonchen Regional Archaeological Project, he has supervised excavations at the rapidly abandoned Terminal Classic hilltop site of Escalera al Cielo and at the Middle Preclassic village of Paso del Macho, both located in the Puuc region of Yucatan.
