In this abundantly illustrated third and final volume on the artifacts found by Edward H. Thompson in the Well of Sacrifice, specialists analyze the great variety of objects and debate whether they represent evidence of dateable prehistorical ritual. The collection includes the rare remains of hundreds of textiles, wooden objects, and copal incense offerings that were preserved in the waters of this limestone sinkhole, as well as the lithics, ceramics and bone and shell artifacts commonly found in Maya burials and caches and about 250 mammalian remains. These objects are remarkable for having been cut, torn, broken, and burned before they were thrown into the green waters of the sacred well at Chichen Itza.

About the Author:

Gordon R. Willey (1913–2002) was Bowditch Professor of Mexican and Central American Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University.

Payson Sheets' research interests include the archaeology of Mesoamerica and the Intermediate Area of lower Central America, focusing on the interrelationships between human societies and volcanic processes in tropical climates. He has incorporated remote sensing with geophysical data to detect and explore the remains of human activity in various countries of Central America. Recent research has focused on the Ceren site, catastrophically buried by the eruption of nearby Loma Caldera volcano in AD 590. At this remarkable site, structures are preserved, including their thatch roofs and their entire artifactual contents, and fields with their cultigens are intact.

Betty J. Kramer, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the School of Social Work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She received her MSSW from the Raymond A. Kent School of Social Work at t eh University of Louisville, and her PhD in Social Welfare from the University of Washington (Seattle). Her research efforts to date have enhanced understanding of three aspects of caregiving that have emerged as unique areas of inquiry: positive aspects of caregiving, transitions in caregiving, and men as caregivers. She is currently engaged in research on innovations and enhancements to end-of-life care. Her clinical experiences have been in multiple settings including hospitals, nursing homes, family practice clinics, and community-based social service agencies. She team teaches a course on Family Caregiving, and teaches other graduate social work courses on the topics of grief and loss, and gerontological social work practice.

April K. Sievert is a Research Associate in the Department of Anthropology at Indiana University, Bloomington. Trained as an archaeologist, her research into ceremonial material culture and stone tool technology has taken her to sites and museums in the eastern U.S., and to the Andes of southern Peru. She received her Ph.D. in Anthropology from Northwestern University in 1990, after which she undertook a research contract with the Smithsonian Institution to analyze artifacts from a major Native American mound site in Oklahoma. She is interested in anthropological ethics, the study of museum collections, and the practice of teaching anthropology. She has taught at Indiana University, Bloomington, Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania, Indiana University - Purdue University in Indianapolis, where she received a teaching award, and the University of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, where she taught archaeological field methods. She is the author of Maya Ceremonial Specialization: Lithic Tools from the Sacred Cenote at Chichen Itza, Yucatan, as well as book sections, and journal articles.

Review:

Fascinating reading throughout and a treasure of information, it belongs in all Maya archaelogy collections. (Choice)
