Global Exploration Grant (National Geographic Society) awarded to Dr. Alexander Geurds for field research in Nicaragua
With the awarded Global Exploration Grant Dr. Alex Geurds will further investigate the Pre-Hispanic archaeological site Aguas Buenas in Nicaragua he recently documented. Partially completed differential-GPS mapping has revealed that this site consists of more than 500 stone and earthen mounds. Mapping, begun during the summer of 2012, has covered an estimated 40% of the site. Preliminary results from excavation confirms human occupation at Aguas Buenas during separate time periods.
