Summary

Ongoing investigations at the site of Dos Hombres are being conducted towards a multiscale perspective. Investigations in the hinterlands of Dos Hombres have revealed much about household and community organization there based on architectural, material culture, and water management feature remains. Evidence in the civic ceremonial center of Dos Hombres is being gathered towards a greater understanding of its role economically in the region, its occupation history, and socio-political organization. The goal is to articulate these data in order to have a holistic understanding of the ancient Maya at Dos Hombres and northwestern Belize. The current investigations at Dos Hombres are focused in the northern plaza, a very public space that could be assumed to have been a place of commerce, public ritual and sacred space.
