Dr. Stanley Guenter

Onsite Archaeologist

Stanley Guenter studied archaeology at the University of Calgary and La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia, before getting his Ph.D. in anthropology at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.

He has worked with three projects in Guatemala, at the sites of El Peru-Waka, La Corona, and a number in the Mirador Basin, as well as at Cahal Pech in Belize with AFAR, at Lake Minnewanka, in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada, and at Phnom Kulen in Cambodia.

Stan’s work involves combining archaeological, epigraphic, and ethnohistoric data to better understand ancient civilizations and their history, and to compare this with paleoenvironmental data to better understand how ancient societies affected and were affected by their changing climates.
