The Boundary End Center (BEC) has been an active and vital part of Mesoamerican and Southeast archaeological studies since its founding by the late George Stuart in 1984 (as the Center for Maya Research). This website preserves George's original vision. The next generation of the Stuarts is determined to keep George's dream alive, assuring BEC's vital role in archaeological and cultural studies for many years to come. Please visit BEC's new website.
