Ancient Maya Pottery

Robert E. Fry

University Press of Florida

Robert Fry interrogates assumptions about pottery production and exchange with case studies from two regions using monochrome slipped bowls and unslipped jars—the more ordinary pottery of the Maya, which has not been given as much attention in regard to these issues. Because of issues of sample size, Fry (unlike the authors of other chapters in the volume) does not use type-variety, but this would be easy to do with significant samples. Instead, Fry uses multidimensional scaling (MDS) to conduct what is essentially a complex modal analysis. Importantly, due to the relatively homogenous geology of the region, stylistic variables were more revealing of regional patterning than were technological attributes.

Keywords:   pottery production, pottery exchange, monochrome slipped bowls, unslipped jars, multidimensional scaling, MDS, modal analysis, geology, stylistic variables, regional pattern, technological attribute
