Item description for Perspectives on Ancient Maya Rural Complexity (Monograph (Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at Ucla), 49.) by Gyles Iannone...

Settlement archaeology in the Maya area has focused much of its attention on the polar extremes of the settlement continuum. As a result of this urban/rural bias, a whole range of complex rural settlements remain under-explored. The chapters in this volume highlight the variable quality of these "middle level settlements." The authors also grapple with the possible social implications of such diversity. The contrasting opinions that result are partially reflective of different scales of analysis, and opposing theoretical perspectives. They are also indicative of the fact that our current models for ancient Maya sociopolitical and socioeconomic organization do not accommodate the range of variability exhibited by sites of this size and complexity. In sum, research into the social implications of rural complexity, as exemplified by the analyses presented in this volume, has forced a critical reevaluation of how we view ancient Maya society.
