Nury de Milian, born in eastern Guatemala, studied archaeology at San Carlos University in Guatemala City. Her projects as an archaeologist include studies of the rock art paintings of Chiquimula in eastern Guatemala and excavations in Caesarea, Israel, with the support of Maryland University. In addition, Nury works with the Archaeological Unit of the Council for the Protection of Antigua Guatemala. She has been a professional guide since 1990 and her broad experience, knowledge, and fluency in English make her an outstanding traveling companion. Nury has joined us as a Trip Leader on many of our past World of the Maya symposium tours.
