Art, Archaeology, and Science: Investigations in the Guatemala Highlands
This collection contains the abstracts of the papers presented in the session entitled "Art, Archaeology, and Science: Investigations in the Guatemala Highlands," at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
The archaeology of highland Guatemala has become a focus of steady research by Guatemalan and foreign
scholars in the last two decades. In this session, scholars will present research results from both well-known
and researched sites, such as Classic Kaminaljuyu and Postclassic Q'umarkaj, and lesser-known
and studied regions and sites, particularly in western Guatemala. As a whole, the research demonstrates the
breadth of current investigations in the art, architecture, ceramics and landscapes in the region; the applicability of current archaeological techniques and technologies to chronology and interaction in the highlands; the viability of utilizing data from the region to address a wide variety of sociocultural themes; and the need for continued collaborative work in a long under studied part of Mesoamerica.
