Transylvania professor seeks 'lost city' in Honduras
Transylvania professor seeks 'lost city' in Honduras
Grant will advance search
6:58 PM, Jul. 9, 2011

LEXINGTON, Ky. An anthropology professor at Transylvania University in Lexington has received a grant to advance his search for a lost city in Honduras. Christopher Begley will use the National Geographic Society grant to examine ancient artifacts in an area of the Honduran rainforest near the Mosquito Coast that is rumored to be the location of an ancient lost city.

Begley will travel to Honduras this week with a team that includes photographer and documentary filmmaker Josh Howard and University of Kentucky engineering professor Larry Hassebrook, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.

They will spend the next year using new technology to conduct archaeological research and filming a documentary called The Lost City of the Mosquito Coast: A Modern Struggle for the Past.

What's interesting is what it says about the present, Begley said of the lost-city legends. This is so pervasive and keeps existing as a legend.
