Summary

This paper presents findings from analysis of the wood charcoal assemblage recovered from two chultun middens from a household site from the Late Classic period at the Maya site of San Bartolo, Guatemala. It will include discussion of fuel gathering strategies, subsistence strategies, how the species identified in the assemblage reflect the relationship the ancient residents of this household had with their local environment, and considerations for future research in reconstructing ancient forest management tactics.
