The Chronological Significance of Maya Ceramics

Author(s): George C. Vaillant

Year: 1961


This thesis on the "Chronological Significance of Maya Ceramics" was undertaken by George C. Vaillant at the behest of Dr. A. M. Tozzer in August 1926, in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at Harvard University. It forms a part of research undertaken while a graduate student in the Division of Anthropology on the ceramics of North America. This thesis is an early attempt to correlate Mayan ceramics with strata of known age.

The Archives of Archaeology Series is a 29-volume set jointly published by the University of Wisconsin Press and the Society for American Archaeology on opaque microcards, a now obsolete format. The Mississippi Valley Archaeology Center at the University of Wisconsin—La Crosse has digitized the original opaque microcards and made the digital copies available through tDAR. More information on the process of digitizing the series can be found in Joseph Tiffany’s 2012 article entitled "Digitizing the Archives of Archaeology Series" in the SAA Archaeological Record (
