On Monday, October 28 at 4 pm in the Hinckley Center assembly hall on BYU Campus, Dr. Stephen Houston, the Dupee Family Professor of Social Sciences at Brown University, will give the first annual John L. Sorenson Lecture: “Recovering a Lost World: The LiDAR Revolution and Ancient Maya Warfare.”
Dr. Houston, one of the leading Mayanists in the world today, will share the results of his first full field season working at La Cuernavilla, a Mayan fortress in northern Guatemala discovered by the LiDAR survey published last year.
The lecture is co-sponsored by Book of Mormon Central and the Department of Anthropology at BYU, and is being held in honor of John L. Sorenson, a pioneering Book of Mormon scholar and founder of the anthropology department at BYU, who is among the most influential Latter-day Saint anthropologists alive today.
The Lecture is open to the public and all are welcome to attend.
