Distinguished Lecture: An Isolated Stop on the Road of Power

An Isolated Stop on the Road of Power: La Corona, the Snake Kings and Altar 5

In 2018, Dr. Marcello Canuto, director of the Middle American Research Institute at Tulane University and co-director of the La Corona Regional Archaeological Project, led a team of archaeologists to new discoveries at the Maya site of La Corona, located in Petén, Guatemala. A nearly 1,500-year-old carved altar, the oldest found to date at the site, presents new evidence for how a powerful kingdom known as the Kaanul dynasty began. See this significant monument currently on display in Maya: The Great Jaguar Rises exhibition.
