Die Keramik von Xkipché

Michael Vallo


This book provides a detailed analysis of the Mayan pottery from Xkipché in the Puuc area of the Yucatan peninsula, Mexico. During the 7th century, in Puuc area a regional type of Mayan culture emerged, recognazible by characteristic architectural style.So far it was impossible to date the beginnings and ends of the settlements in this area. The site of Xkipché offers clues to the dating, with almost half a million of studied pottery fragments. This is by far the largest prehispanic pottery assemblage from the whole of the northen Yucatan.
