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.
