Tulane and Mayan history have always been mentioned in the same sentence. Middle American Research Institute has been digging in those jungles for decades and now imaging.

Wasn't implying you didn't - just stating the obvious for any Tulane alum.

I entered Tulane as an anthropolgy major. My adviser was Dr. Harvey Bricker. I switched major to math because I was too lazy to do all the reading. My suitemate graduated with a degree in LAS. Excellent Latin dances in the Kendall Cram Room plus free tequila night in the Rat. Ah, the choices we made...

Did a cruise that stopped at costa maya. Did a tour of Mayan ruins Chacchoban. Very proud when the info described how Tulane profs had started and led its excavation.

Packaged national story about this was shown on my local morning news today. They had a brief interview with one of the Tulane guys but Tulane was not mentioned whatsoever. :?

Still... As the anchor said after the story ended, "that is SO cool!"

I can hear Dickie V. "The flyin' Mayan is a PTPer. Dunleavy used all his connections to find this guy. Where did they dig him up from?"

When i was visiting Chitzen Itza as a 9 year old (no, it was not inhabited still), I remember watching archeologists working on what was felt to be a sacrificial well, about 25 feet in diameter. I was awe-struck watching a researcher calmly walking along with a skull in his hand.

Based on the fact that Mayan ball game losers faced a certain fate, it might have been a player who did not make the grade...
