New Perspectives from the Late Preclassic Period in the Mirador-Calakmul Basin
The Late Preclassic period (350 B.C.-A.D. 150) in the Mirador-Calakmul Basin is characterized by innovations in various aspects of ancient Maya society which are the reflections of an complex ideological, socio-,political, and economic power. These ingredients were responsible for the conception and creation of large and diverse works of architecture and engineering achievements. This paper will discuss the importance of the Late Preclassic period in El Mirador and contemporary cities within the Basin system as an evolutionary process, and the data provide a reflection of the sovereignty radiated during the Preclassic period within the Basin and other surrounding cities.
