Since 2009, investigative research for the Dos Hombres to Gran Cacao (DH2GC) project has focused on an unsurveyed area in the immediate northeastern periphery of Dos Hombres and has expanded to include an area located two kilometers southeast from the La Milpa site core. The incorporation of a broad multiregional comparative dataset will facilitate a greater understanding of the sociopolitical dynamicity on multiple social and economic levels within the Three Rivers Region in Northwestern Belize. This paper will specifically focus ceramic data that has come from the DH2GC project, La Milpa periphery, and other areas of the Programme for Belize property. Topics such as ceramic distribution patterns and part-time ceramic provisioning within a larger regional context will be discussed. Also, an observed (probable) intermittent ceramic production area found in the outskirts of the La Milpa site-core will be presented.
