» Downloads & Basic Metadata


Summary

TR27A reports upon goods used as markers of social status and goods used in ritual. It describes the splendid ornaments and insignia of jade, shell, pearls, and inscribed bone shown in representations on monuments and pottery vessels and recovered from the burials of Tikal's elites. Each artifact is described in the text, tabulated, and richly illustrated with drawings and photographs. An accompanying CD-ROM includes updated databases for all recovered objects, enabling the reader to discover detailed relationships between artifact, date, and context. It also includes William R. Coe's drafts of reconstructions of destroyed offerings and typologies for ceremonial lithics and shell "Charlie Chaplin" figurines.

Hattula Moholy-Nagy is a Research Associate of the Penn Museum. William R. Coe was director of the Penn Museum's Tikal Project and Professor of Anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania.
