The University of Pennsylvania Museum’s Early Copan Acropolis Program (ECAP) is excavating and integrating the overall sequence of this buried architecture. Our efforts are providing one of the most complete records of the origins and develop­ment of an Early Classic royal complex found anywhere in.

The University of Pennsylvania Museum began work at the Classic Maya center of Copán, Honduras, in with the formation of what came to be the Early Copán Acropolis program (ECAP). Phase I of this research corresponds to the active collection of archaeological data from excavation–in this case, mostly from a network of some 3 kms of tunnels ECAP has excavated beneath the Copán Acropolis.

Since the ’s, archaeologists have tunneled into the acropolis at Copan to understand the many phases of construction throughout its history.

The Copán rulers themselves claimed their own dynasty was founded in CE, but there is no record. One of the goals of the Early Copan Acropolis Program (ECAP) was to locate evidence of Copán’s founder.

Our investigations, as well as other excavations, had suggested that the area we call the “Mini-Acropolis of the South” (MAS) dated to the earliest era of Copán’s history. I would like to thank John E.
