      Archaeology Lecture: State expansionism, colonialism, and stranger-kings among the Classic Maya

      This lecture takes place at 7:30 p.m., on Wednesday, Feb. 19, in the Highsmith Student Union Mountain Suites. It is free and open to everyone.

      Maxime Lamoureux-St-Hilaire is visiting assistant professor in archaeology in the Anthropology Department of Davidson College. He received his Ph.D. from Tulane University (2018), his M.A. from Trent University (2011), and B.Sc. from Université de Montréal (2008). Lamoureux-St-Hilaire has a keen interest for cross-cultural comparisons in archaeology and is most fascinated by how ancient governments worked. Specifically, he studies the structure of Classic Maya royal courts as evidenced by their regal palaces. Most recently, he has excavated the regal palace of La Corona, Guatemala, although his archaeological path has also led him to work in Belize, Mexico, Honduras, and Québec.

      This lecture is co-sponsored by UNC Asheville’s Department of Classics and Western North Carolina Chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America. For more information, contact UNC Asheville Lecturer in Art and Classics Laurel Taylor, ltaylor@unca.edu or 828.251.6290.
