Título: Pottery Ethnoarchaeology in the Central Maya...
Encuadernación: Soft cover
Book by Deal, MichaelFrom the Publisher:
Michael Deal collected the information presented in this book under the auspices of the Coxoh Ethnoarchaeological Project in Chiapas, which sought to establish material culture links between the now-extinct Coxoh and modern Maya groups in the area. Information collected at each Maya household focused on the relationship between pottery and family social structure, settlement characteristics, and economic background. Much of the work is given over to an analysis of the household as a production, consumption, and depositional unit with a view toward determining how examining pottery can explicate household socioeconomic conditions in the archaeological record. Moreover, since the number of traditional potters is declining throughout the world, the rich descriptions of the pottery found at these Mayan sites will be of great use to archaeologists, curators, and specialists who need to have accurate details about traditional ceramics. This study is valuable not just for information specific to ancient Maya pottery usage but also as a model for the use of ceramic data to help interpret archaeological pottery assemblages.
