Congrats & welcome to the fold Dr. Alexandre Tokovinine!

From Dr. Tokovinine,

I work in Guatemala and Honduras and specialize in Maya archaeology and epigraphy. Most of my fieldwork has been centered on the archaeological sites of Holmul, Naranjo, and Copan. I am interested in the indigenous political landscapes in 378-909 C.E., especially in how broader regional changes affected individual political regimes. The exploration of Maya glyphs and iconography took me to a range of other topics including color, feasting, merchants, pilgrims, ball game, and calendar. I am fascinated with the new technologies such as 3D scanning and VR which transform our ways of studying the past and sharing the experience. You can learn more about my research on the project’s webpage and the Academia profile.
