Historical Archaeology in Yucatan and Central America

  • William R. Fowler
Chapter

This essay attempts to summarize some of the recent trends and developments in the historical archaeology of Yucatan and Central America. The area of Yucatan, as defined here, encompasses the entire Yucatan Peninsula, including the Mexican states of Campeche and Yucatán, the territory of Quintana Roo, the republic of Belize, and the department of El Petén in Guatemala (hence, the northern and southern Maya lowlands). The area of Central America, as used here, includes highland Chiapas (Soconusco is covered in the chapter by Charlton and Fournier) and the republics of Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama. Due to limitations on length, this cannot be a comprehensive survey of published research. It should be regarded, at best, as a selective and somewhat idiosyncratic summary of some of the more interesting recent research in historical archaeology in Yucatan and Central America.
