The Middle American Research Institute and Far Horizons are proud to present the Twelfth Annual Tulane Maya Symposium and Workshop. This year's symposium, titled "Royal Chambers Unsealed: Tombs of the Classic Maya", will explore the significance the ancient Classic Maya placed on the death of their divine rulers, as well as the meaning they invested in their funerary architecture, building decoration, grave goods, burial texts, and mortuary rituals.

This year’s Keynote, hosted at the New Orleans Museum of Art, will be given by Dr. William Fash of Harvard University who will guide us through the rich and impenetrable funerary world of the Classic Maya.
