Title: A household perspective : ceramics from a domestic structure at Kichpanha, Belize
Author: Root-Garey, Emily Donna
Abstract: Research at Kichpanha , Belize , has primarily focused on the Late Preclassic , elite contexts , and the regional economic and political roles of the site . This study is an initial step in expanding qualitative research at Kichpanha across the Classic period and into the smaller scale of domestic contexts , analyzing ceramics recovered in association with a Late Classic mound structure and Late Preclassic lithic workshop . Drawing on literature in household archaeology and pre -Columbian Maya commoners , I focus on structure function and social status of occupants . Additionally , I examine how the ceramics fit into the established chronology at Kichpanha , and address the spatiotemporal relationship between the mound structure and lithic workshop .
