Final Results from The 2019 Expedition to the Northeastern Jungles of Peru

Archaeologist and Wayland teacher, Daniel Fernandez-Davila, will update us on his latest trip to Peru, where he and a group of 12 others collected scanned data of ancient artifacts to be used for further research and display in local museums. The results have shown early carvings that were not expected for that region. More information here: https://www.archaeology.org/news/8392-200130-peru-monolith-scan

In addition to the archaeological work, Daniel and his cohort delivered books and educational materials for school children, made possible by the Wayland non-profit Loose Change, started by Daniel and Antonia Hieronymous. In addition to providing school supplies, the non-profit also builds/renovates schools.
