Over the Hills: Decline and Abandonment of the Bolonchén District
Author(s): Rebecca Hill
This paper examines the final decades of the Terminal Classic and the beginning of the Postclassic in the Bolonchén district of the Puuc region of the northern Maya lowlands. Archaeological evidence for the decline and abandonment of the Bolonchén district at the close of the Terminal Classic period is presented. Particular attention is given to the material remains of a late Terminal Classic population at Huntichmul, an example of a Puuc center in decline and most likely abandoned by the close of the Terminal Classic, with a comparative analysis of select archaeological contexts investigated by the Bolonchén Regional Archaeological Project (BRAP).
