Report of 2011 research at the Ceren site, El Salvador


The 2011 research at Ceren, El Salvador, focused on agriculture about 100 m south of the village architecture, and encountered surprising variation in maize and manioc cultivation. The serendipitous discovery of a Sacbe (ancient Maya roadway) was surprising and intriguing, as it is much wider and more formal than needed for purely practical-economic purposes.
