Coloring the past: the El Pilar Maya Forest Garden Coloring Book Project

World Archaeology Congress

Anabel Ford presents her paper on Coloring the Past in the WAC6 session titled Perspectives on the past: archaeology beyond academics

This session attempts to explore connections between archaeology, other discplines, professions and the community. In the modern world, archaeology is woven in diverse ways into different aspects of life, spanning a wide range of communities and cultures. The session explores how archaeology today is perceived by other academicians, by publishers/publishing houses specialising in popular literature, in the field of children's literature, in the print and electronic media and by the wider community spanning people from differing regions/cultural backgrounds.
