Ancient Maya Pottery

Lauren Sullivan and Jaime Awe discuss the pottery of the earliest-known ceramic complex in the Maya region, Cunil, which they date from 1100 to 900 B.C. As the authors note, because these dates are so early, the Cunil ceramics have been assessed very cautiously. For those outside the debates around the Preclassic period and its pottery, this chapter may appear straightforward, but it represents nearly two decades of work on the definition of the Cunil complex, especially its dating, and the result of years of discussion among archaeologists. Sullivan and Awe present here their preliminary typology of the wares, groups, types, and varieties of the Cunil complex. These provide a succinct language for further discussion of Cunil across the Maya lowlands.
