Archaeology prof elected to British Academy
Norman Hammond, CAS professor of archaeology, has been elected a corresponding fellow of the British Academy in recognition of his work on the Maya civilization of Central America. According to his citation, election as a corresponding fellow "is the highest honor that the academy is able to confer in recognition of scholarly distinction." Hammond has been at BU since 1988. He directs a multi-institutional research program at the Maya city of La Milpa in the tropical forest of northwestern Belize. BU students participated in a field study program there this spring through the University's division of international programs.
