In this issue:

Chum Balam-Nal - Belize
The Maya Research Program has been carrying out research at Blue Creek in Belize for many years now. Their main focus of study centres on why an advanced society such as the Maya collapsed so
dramatically. Their plans for the 2010 field season include the excavation of an elite area known as
Chum Balam-Nal.

Painted Landscapes - California
The surreal pictographs of the Californian Chumash have been recognised as among the most elaborate and exquisite examples of rock-art found anywhere in the United States. A team of archaeologists led by David Robinson is carrying out a detailed examination of the art using the latest technologies.

A Refuge in the Desert? - Western Sahara
Nick Brooks and Joanne Clarke have been examining how prehistoric populations responded and adapted to severe climatic and environmental changes, specifically the desertification of the Saharan region between about 6000 and 4500 years ago.

Lords of the Sea - Norway
The Lofotr Museum is a replica of the largest chieftain’s long-house ever found in Scandinavia. The
excavation of the long-house revealed much about life in late Iron-Age Northern Norway and showed
that the inhabitants had travelled widely in order to trade.
