The Curious Pacific Coast Distribution of Tightly Wrapped Bundle Burials in the Middle Formative
This is an abstract from the "Coastal Connections: Pacific Coastal Links from Mexico to Ecuador" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
Highly unusual tightly wrapped bundle burials of previously cleaned and carefully arranged disarticulated human bones dating to the Middle Formative have been discovered by archaeologists at three sites in western Jalisco, Mexico, one site on the Pacific coastal plain in far northern Sinaloa, Mexico and eroding out of the Pacific Coast in northwestern Costa Rica. We describe these discoveries and discuss some possible implications for the study of long-range Pre-Hispanic contacts along the Pacific coastal corridor of Mesoamerica.
