Middens, Caches, and Burials: Contextualizing the Ceramic Assemblage of La Corona
Author(s): Caroline Parris
Mundane utilitarian ware, finely decorated polychromes, fine paste and epigraphic imports, and plates bearing idiosyncratic local designs characterize La Corona’s ceramic assemblage. The ceramic chronology of La Corona is presented with emphasis on construction phases, middens, caches, burials, and special deposits in an effort to reconcile the ceramic assemblage and the political history of the site. Polychromes bearing place names highlight La Corona’s elite regional relationships while the prevalence of Lowland utilitarian ceramic types regionally contextualizes the nonelite. This paper seeks to situate the ceramic assemblage of La Corona within its chronological, regional, political, and social contexts.
