The ancient Maya produced a broad range of ceramics that has attracted concerted scholarly attention for over a century. Pottery shards--the most abundant artifacts recovered from sites--reveal much about artistic expression, religious ritual, economic systems, cooking traditions, and cultural exchange in Maya society.

Today, nearly every Maya archaeologist uses the type-variety classificatory framework for studying sherd collections. This impressive volume brings together many of the archaeologists signally involved in the analysis and interpretation of ancient Maya ceramics and represents new findings and state-of-the-art thinking. The result is a book that serves both as a valuable resource for archaeologists involved in pottery classification, analysis, and interpretation and as an illuminating exploration of ancient Mayan culture.

"Take[s] us to the heart of archaeological analysis by closely examining methods of ceramic analysis and of the type-variety system."--Reviews in Anthropology

"A very significant contribution to ceramic studies and especially pottery from sites from the Maya Lowlands. It is nearly 30 years since a similar compendium has been assembled. . . . Aimers has established a new benchmark."--SAS Bulletin
