The author employed ceramic thin section petrology, raw materials sourcing, and contextual archaeological analyses and samples from a variety of excavated sites in the Belize River Valley region were included: Pacbitun, Cahal Pech, Baking Pot, El Pilar.

Cahal Pech is the modern traveler’s solution to seeing ancient history in close proximity to civilization.
