Pigeon hole

Pigeon hole

Here is a view of the interior of the pigeon hole complex rooms. As you can see they are fairly small. families usually lived within this space, and it was more of a space for sleeping and eating than for communal gatherings as our homes are currently. You have to remember that the mayan people were also much smaller than we are today, so the spatial dimension of the homes are modeled as such. Another quick fact; the mayan people slept on beds that usually consisted of a stone slab covered by layers of animal skins or plants. When a member of the household died they were buried under the slab that was their bed, and then the room would be used by the next member of the family. Archeologists discovered this fairly recently when excavated the perimeter of a mayan household, and they exhumed a number of graves in the process.

Hi, I am just beginning a world adventure of my very own! My name is Tristan Davis Fralick and I am a nursing and social justice student from the central New York region. I really enjoy working with people and I have made it my goal to see as much of the world's cultures as possible to best understand and relate to the people that live all around us. In my free-time I enjoy hiking, biking, swimming, playing music, cooking, writing (obviously), and learning new things in any way that I can. This is a blog consisting of my travels past and present. I hope that you enjoy!
