Writers on the Storm: A Terminal Classic Migrant Maya Scribal Household
Author(s): Josalyn Ferguson
Despite the fact that images of Maya scribes in Classic period art are not uncommon, the identification of scribes and their households within the archaeological record remains elusive. The association of several utensils typically correlated with Maya scribal toolkits, and a prominent house mound at the Terminal Classic Maya community of Strath Bogue, has prompted the identification of this structure as a scribal household. This identification is of particular significance given that the site is argued to have been settled in the aftermath of the Maya "collapse" by a migrant population.
