The Classic period Maya archaeological site of Quiriguá in Guatemala contains the largest corpus of carved stone hieroglyphic text in the Maya World (c. 426 to 810 AD). This UNESCO World Heritage site is imperiled due to the fragility of the landscape and carvings and the impacts of Climate Change and increasing intensities and frequencies of hurricanes to the area. In 2020, the site again faced severe flooding and impacts from major hurricanes that devastated the area. Our collaborative 3D documentation project, conducted before storm impacts, are providing data for conservation, preservation and lasting interpretation efforts for the site. Project in collaboration with the Guatemalan Ministry of Culture and Sport and the Minister of National Cultural and Natural Heritage and Oswaldo Gomez is the Director of the Archaeological Park and Ruins of Quiriguá.
