Franco D. Rossi


Franco D. Rossi is an archaeologist and epigrapher specializing in the pre-Columbian Americas, with a focus on politics of literacy, architecture and art of the Ancient Maya. His most recent project draws from fieldwork he conducted at the site of Xultun in Northeastern Guatemala as a part of the San Bartolo/Xultun Regional Archaeological Project—examining the archaeology of a complex called Los Sabios and its rare murals. He investigates this unique body of evidence as a window into broader questions of how writing, expertise, and science education were managed in ancient Mesoamerican statecraft.
