Xcoch and Puuc
Archaeology Project


The Xcoch and Puuc Archaeology Project, directed by Dr. Ezra Zubrow, is an investigation dealing with climate change, and how civilizations in the Yucatan have adapted to it. The Classic Maya collapse, which occurred between 800 and 900 AD, is of particular interest to researchers delving into this time period. The current change in global temperature if also of great importance to researchers today, as current weather patterns suggest that it is remarkably substantial to the Medieval Warm Period, which occurred around the same time as the Classic Maya collapse. Please take the opportunity to explore our project through the materials provided on this website.
