The Technology of Maya Civilization : Political Economy Amd Beyond in Lithic Studies Hardback

Description

The ancient Maya shaped their world with stone tools.

Lithic artifacts helped create the cityscape and were central to warfare and hunting, craft activities, cooking, and ritual performance. 'The Technology of Maya Civilization' examines Maya lithic artefacts made of chert, obsidian, silicified limestone, and jade to explore the relationship between ancient civilizations and natural resources.

The volume presents case studies of archaeological sites in Guatemala, Mexico, Belize, and Honduras.

The analysis draws on innovative anthropological theory to argue that stone artefacts were not merely cultural products but tools that reproduced, modified, and created the fabric of society.
