Cahal Pech Plaza B Faunal Analysis Public

Excavations undertaken in and around Plaza B (n=484) and structure B5 (n=58) at the ancient Maya site of Cahal Pech between 2011-2013 by Nancy Peniche May. Analysis of this material was performed by Martin Welker in the fall of 2015 in preparation for isotopic and AMS radiocarbon dating by Claire Ebert. Excavations by Nancy Peniche May focused on documenting Middle Preclassic period (early and late facet Kanluk ceramic phases; 900-300 BC). Material recovered from structure B5 is believed to date to the Xakal ceramic phase (300 BC – AD 350). Additional details on this assemblage, and the invertebrate component analyzed by Peniche May are provided in her dissertation.
