Site Artist in Belize
I have been very fortunate indeed to have been part of a team of archaeologists working in Belize, Central America, led by British-born Harvard professor Prof. Norman Hammond, a respected scholar on lowland Maya civilization. My first season was in 1978 and I worked as site artist on many until 2007. Incredibly exciting with life-changing experiences. I was largely responsible for on-site drawings of architectural features generally pyramids - limestone structures with exteriors often reduced to rubble and interior tombs looted. Back in camp, I inked up the drawings for publication. have worked at 3 sites in all in Belize: Cuello, Nohmul, La Milpa and Chaux Hiix. A few of the drawings I include here for anyone who wonders what such work involves. Most of the pics give a snapshot of camp life.
