|Archaeology program series at Grand Village slated|
The Grand Village of the Natchez Indians will present an illustrated talk by Lee Jones entitled "The Caste War of Yucatan" in the museum auditorium at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 1, 2009. Admission is free and seating is limited.
Jones is a native of Natchez, professional forester, and owner of Jones Lumber Company. He began traveling on business to Central America in the late 1960s and learned to speak Spanish out of necessity. His interest in archaeology led him to travel to the Yucatan Peninsula in 1977, where he began his lifelong study of Maya civilization. Since then, he has returned to Mexico and Central America every year to expand his knowledge of Maya culture and history, working with archaeologists and participating in excavations. His articles on the Maya have been published by the Institute of Maya Studies, an affiliate of the Miami Science Museum.
"The Caste War of Yucatan" is Jones's third lecture on the Maya as part of the Grand Village Archaeology Program Series. Previous talks by Jones have covered the 2000-year history of Maya civilization. In the nineteenth century, the Maya Indians launched the most successful and longest revolt against their European conquerors by indigenous people of the Western Hemisphere. The rebellion lasted over fifty years and the region still bears scars from the conflict. Jones will begin the program with a discussion of the sixteenth-century Spanish conquest of Mexico. The talk will conclude with information about the "Maya Apocalypse" predicted by the Maya calendar to occur in 2012.
Light refreshments will be served. Call 601-446-6502 for more information.
