Andrew Scherer and Charles Golden were among the archaeologists I spent time with in the spring of 2004, in Esmeralda and Tecolote. They continued their explorations of the Sierra del Lacandon Park in Guatemala in 2005 and will return in June of this year.
This is their 2005 report to FAMSI:
I've made Google Earth overlays of two of their maps from the report.
