Ancient Maya Political Dynamics

Antonia E. Foias

University Press of Florida

This chapter provides four examples of archaeological studies that have reconstructed ancient political systems in different parts of the world: Northern Mesopotamia and the Urartian empire in the Near East, Cahokia in Southeastern United States, and Uxujte on the Pacific Coast of Guatemala in Central America. These case studies underscore the changing concerns of archaeologists interested in ancient politics, from macroscale processes at the level of state governments to more microscale processes at the level of individuals, households, power blocs, and communities, and their impact on the larger polity.

Keywords:   Mesopotamia, Urartian empire, Cahokia, Uxujte
