Analysis of Marine Sediment of Ancient Maya Saltworks in Paynes Creek National Park, Southern Belize. (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Roberto Rosado Ramirez. Heather McKillop. E. Cory Sills.

In this paper we present the results of archaeological research at two Classic period Maya salt works currently submerged in a shallow salt-water lagoon in Paynes Creek National Park, Southern Belize. These two contexts are part of the more than 100 locations so far identified in the area where salt was produced by boiling brine over fires near wooden structures. Through the study of marine sediment recovered at excavations from sites 24 and 35, we were able to document environmental and...

Bridging the Gaps: Integrating Archaeology and History in Oaxaca, Mexico (2015)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Uploaded by: Chelsea Walter

Bridging the Gaps: Integrating Archaeology and History in Oaxaca, Mexico does just that: it bridges the gap between archaeology and history of the Precolumbian, Colonial, and Republican eras of the state of Oaxaca, Mexico, a cultural area encompassing several of the longest-enduring literate societies in the world. Fourteen case studies from an interdisciplinary group of archaeologists, anthropologists, ethnohistorians, and art historians consciously compare and contrast changes and...

Dietary Implications from an Inundated Shell Midden at a Classic Maya Salt Work (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Valerie Feathers. Heather McKillop. E. Cory Sills. Rachel Watson.

During the 2013 field season, an inundated shell midden was excavated at the underwater ancient Maya salt production site of Eleanor Betty, one of the Paynes Creek Salt Works. Excavations revealed that the midden was located 16-30 cm below the sea-floor and extended both inside and outside of an underwater wooden structure. During the spring of 2015, analyses were performed to identify the shell species, assess the nature of the midden (cultural or natural), and evaluate dietary implications of...

Made locally or long-distance transportation? New evidence on ceramic vessels from salt production sites from the Late Shang Period in North Shandong (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Qiaowei Wei.

Research on salt production in Ancient China has been examining the function, typology, and chronology of a certain type of ceramic vessel, the kuixingqi (Helmet-shaped vessel). Instead of examining typology of Kuixingqi vessels from salt workshops at North Shandong region, dated to 3000 BC, I began by looking at how those Kuixingqi vessels made and transported into the salt workshops, if those vessels are not made locally. I will present the findings of the ceramic petrographic analysis...

Paynes Creek Salt Works: Ten Field Seasons of Underwater Maya Survey, Mapping, and Excavations (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Heather McKillop. Karen McKee. Harry Roberts. Terrance Winemiller. John Jones.

The unexpected discovery of wooden buildings preserved in the mangrove peat sediment below the sea floor in Paynes Creek National Park, southern Belize, provided an opportunity to re-evaluate the nature of salt production in the ancient Maya economy and the nature of ancient Maya wooden architecture. Innovative techniques based on shallow underwater survey elsewhere were used to systematically search in a salt-water lagoon system for wooden structures and associated briquetage—the pottery used...


POLLEN ANALYSIS OF SEDIMENT FROM SITE CSH 2, KAKA’AKO, HONOLULU, O’AHU, HAWAI’I (2019)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Linda Scott Cummings.

The Ward Block F Project is located in the Kaka’ako neighborhood of the city of Honolulu, O’ahu, Hawai’i, along the coast between Downtown Honolulu and Waikiki. Excavation of Site CSH 2 uncovered berms and pans related to historic period (post-1778) salt production below 20th century fill deposits. Eleven sediment samples were collected from Site CSH 2 for pollen analysis to determine the extent of historic human modification of the coastal landscape into salt production complexes.


Proyecto Salinas de los Nueve Cerros
PROJECT Uploaded by: Brent Woodfill

Archaeology, ethnohistory, ethnography, geology, and community development at the largest Precolumbian saltworks in the Maya world. Salinas de los Nueve Cerros was a Maya city located at the highland-lowland transition along the Chixoy River that produced up to 24,000 tons of salt/year during the Late Classic period (AD 600-850). It was occupied from at least 800 BC through the Classic collapse, and continued to be occupied throughout the Postclassic and colonial periods, with salt production...


Reevaluation of the Placencia Salt Works in the Classic Maya Economy (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only E. Cory Sills. J. Jefferson MacKinnon.

The Placencia Salt Works in southern Belize are re-evaluated based on 2015 field work, building on previous research by J. Jefferson MacKinnon. Comparisons are made with the Paynes Creek Salt Works based on a similar salt-water lagoon environment, salt-production artifacts (briquetage), the presence of earthen mounds, and the absence of preserved wooden architecture at the Placencia Salt Works. Study of the briquetage indicates a similar process of evaporating brine in pots over fires to make...
