University Press of Florida

In this chapter, the excavations at Tipu and Lamanai are described, with a focus on the church at Tipu and the two churches built at Lamanai. What is known from documentary evidence about the two communities is summarized, church burials are discussed, and an attempt is made to integrate the information from archaeological and documentary sources. Reconstructions of what we think the churches looked like, based on archaeological data, are provided, and the overall narrative carries through to the end of the sixteenth century.

Keywords:   Tipu, Lamanai, Church, burial, archaeology, ethnohistory, Franciscan
