Contribution of Stephan F. de Borhegyi to the Archaeology in Guatemala: Investigation in the Borhegyi’s Archives at the Milwaukee Public Museum
Author(s): Edgar Carpio
Archaeologist Stephan Borhegyi contributed significantly to the development of archeology in Guatemala in the late 1950s and early 1960s with his investigations both in the highlands and on the Pacific Coast. He was a pioneer in underwater archeology at Lake Amatitlán and carried out studies at other sites around the lake. He also made important entries on different archaeological sites in the Highlands and on the Pacific Coast, particularly on the Bilbao site. In Guatemala, his works were published in the journal Anthropology and History of Guatemala. He has an important role in the organization of the collections of the National Museum of Archeology of Guatemala. At the Milwaukee Public Museum are his field notes, as well as other valuable documents related to his research work in Guatemala. There are also some samples of ceramic objects and other objects on display, from Amatitlan and the Pacific Coast. Our interest is to recognize his important work in the archeology of Guatemala.
