Rio Bravo Archaeology Field School

**NO FIELDWORK IN 2017 (2018 season uncertain)**

The Rio Bravo Archaeological Survey (RBAS) is a summer Maya archaeology field school that trains students in archaeological field methods within the context of a state-of-the-art research project. The program is situated in an unexplored, tropical rainforest in northern Belize, Central America, and can be taken for 3 or 6 college credits through the Community College of Philadelphia or the the University of Texas at Austin.* Non-credit volunteers are also welcome.

Students who are interested in joining us for the 2016 season should review the information provided, including the 2016 Info Sheet, and contact us via email or by submitting an application.

To sign up, please fill out an application.

 

*RBAS operates in Belize under a permit issued from the Institute of Archaeology to Dr. Fred Valdez, Director of the Programme for Belize Archaeological Project (PfBAP).
