Research & Study Center

The New World Archaeological Foundation Research and Study Center located in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico, is an archaeological and teaching entity whose principal objective is the study of the earliest origins and subsequent trajectory of civilization (complex societies) in the New World. The main focus area concentrates on, but is not limited to, the State of Chiapas. The NWAF Research and Study Center exists to enrich the BYU student experience through mentoring/internship opportunities, and to further enhance these experiences by providing possibilities for working side-by-side with Mexican and other international students and researchers. The resulting findings will be disseminated in the form of NWAF Papers, theses, and other professional outlets.
