SUPPORT THE CHOCOLÁ ARCHAEOLOGICAL PROJECT (PACH)
are used to finance the annual field season in Chocolá, Guatemala;
purchase of equipment and supplies; the year-round protection of
the ancient site; storage and restoration of artifacts such as whole
pots and carved stone monuments; and other expenses critical to
the advancement of PACH's research into this seminal ancient Maya
occupation. In addition, donations support a variety of sustainable
community developments initiatives, both touristic and agricultural.
You can specify how you wish your donations to be spent, for example,
for the creation of a museum housing ancient artifacts and information
and the ancient Maya and Chocolá’s place in the trajectory
of Maya civilization, as we are coming to understand it; or for
the reintroduction of cacao farming at Chocolá – anciently
in the ancient Maya chocolate heartland (indeed, Chocolá
may have been a “kingdom of chocolate,” that became
large and culturally important very early because of its cacao).
