A Lexington archaeologist has received a grant from the National Geographic Society to advance his search for a "lost city" in Honduras. Christopher Begley, an associate professor of anthropology at Transylvania University and director of the Exploration Foundation, will use the National Geographic/Waitt Foundation research grant and 3-D technology to examine ancient artifacts in the Honduran rainforest, near the Mosquito Coast.
