Data Identification
Abstract: The northeast tip of the Yucatan Peninsula is a largely unexplored coastline where ancient Maya traders traveled in massive dugout canoes filled with goods from across Mesoamerica. Along this coastline lies the ancient port site of Vista Alegre. The ancient Maya survived and thrived here despite an extraordinarily complex and harsh coastal environment by employing highly specialized subsistence strategies involving perennial access to freshwater, exploitation of marine resources, and cultivation of nich plant species. By bringing together scholars from the fields of archaeology, coastal ecology, geoarchaeology, and hydrogeology, the Costa Escondida Project will explore adaptive subsistence strategies at the human-coastal interface.
Purpose: The project endeavors to reconstruct what life was like at the ancient coastal port of Vista Alegre and how it changed over time. This project will provide new data for Mayanists and Mesoamericanists and intends to enhance scientific understanding of peoples' interaction with the sea, to engage the public through compelling and relevant stories about maritime history, and to enable local partners to better protect and preserve their coastal and submerged cultural resources.
