NICH Launches Maya Forest Garden Coloring Book
Most of the work at the Maya site El Pilar focuses on preserving the uncharted jungle environs that smother the site. It's a concept called "Archaeology under the canopy" and it celebrates the site as it exists beneath the jungle cover that shrouds it.
And that marriage of nature and antiquity is what a new book hopes to impress in the minds of Belizean students. It is a coloring book and it's aimed at standard three students as part of the African and Maya history curriculum. We found out more at this morning's launching.
