AIA Lecture: Monumental Construction + Maya Development at Pachbitun

Time: 12:00 pm til 1:00 pm

Location: UNF Archaeology Lab

Description: Early Monumental Construction and Middle Preclassic Maya Development at Pacbitun, Belize, by Dr. Terry G. Powis, Kennesaw State University
In the Belize Valley, there has been a concerted effort since the early 1990s to recover information about the Preclassic Maya through sub-plaza research. This approach has been very effective at Pacbitun resulting in the recovery of an abundant amount of data pertaining to the earliest inhabitants of the site’s two main plazas, Plaza A and Plaza B. The first temples built are truly monumental in size and, given the separation of residential and non-residential space between Plazas A and B, they provide a glimpse into the nature, structure, and extent of sociopolitical changes at the site throughout the Middle Preclassic (800-400 BC) period. These transformations observed at Pacbitun can now be compared to other sites in the Belize Valley and elsewhere in hopes of identifying similar patterns of early sociopolitical development.
