Nestled in Belize’s lush tropical rain forest, the Chan site was long known to local farmers who still farm the area around the archaeological site. The area was noted by archaeologists in 1994 who were working on a regional settlement survey. The Chan project, a collaborative, international, multidisciplinary research project, began in 2002, bringing together a team of over 120 foreign and local archaeologists, botanists, geologists, geographers, chemists, computer scientists, artists, students, workers, volunteers, and local community residents from Belize, the USA, England, Canada, and China (Robin 2012).
