Others include archaeologists, students, and local helpers -- Karen Pierce, Norbert Stanchly, Gary, Laura Howard, Claude Belanger, Thomas M. Shelby, Mark Shelby, Estuardo Arevalo, Stephen?, Melissa Seldon Knight. The fractured base of Stela 9 is in the location in which it was discovered at Structure N10-27.
Since 1998 Elizabeth Graham has been working to improve the storage conditions of the artifact collections that are housed at Lamanai in order to preserve the cultural heritage of this important site for future generations and to make the collections more accessible.
