Settlement Pattern Analysis at the Medicinal Trail Community, Northwestern Belize: Results of Topographic Mapping from 2013-
Author(s): Michael Stowe
This poster presents the results of five field seasons of intensive survey and total station mapping at the Medicinal Trail Community, a Maya hinterland settlement in northwestern Belize. Mapping during the summer of 2017 has further refined our understanding of the size and distribution of households and numerous landscape features that have been, or continue to be, the focus of excavations. Refinements to the topographical mapping within the area has revealed several complex household groups associated with ridge tops, as well as an extensive network of artificial terraces, drainages and reservoirs associated with dense settlement.
