The New York Times report on the ongoing excavations at Seibal (Ceibal) in Guatemala. The site is currently being excavated by Takeshi Inomata. What I was glad to see in the article was a picture of a former Guatemalan colleague of mine that I have not seen since 1998. Otto Román made my first field season at ElPilar in Belize memorable in many ways and I even had the opportunity to meet his wife and daughter in Guatemala City after the field season. I have not really been involved much in Central Lowland archaeology since 2001 so that is the reason why we lost contact.
