The Terminal Preclassic in Northern Belize Defined

Author(s): Robin Robertson

Year: 2018


Joseph Ball has devoted his professional career to masterfully determining how the ceramic complexes at one site related to those at another, generating models for Maya movements and prehistory from the identified similarities or differences between them. Following his example, this paper proposes to take the data from Cerro Maya in Northern Belize and correlate it with other sequences in the region to produce a carefully researched sequence for the region with specific attention to the pre-Tulix and the Terminal Preclassic material. In the process, a definition for the Terminal Preclassic (as opposed to the "protoclassic") will be explicated and its meaning explored.
