In search of Maya sea traders by Heather Irene McKillop ( Book )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 272 libraries worldwide
"In this book, McKillop tells the story of the search for the Maya sea traders, as well as the story of the traders themselves as it emerges from the excavations. In Search of Maya Sea Traders describes the trading port of Wild Cane Cay, where exotic obsidian, jade, gold, and other goods - including highly crafted pots - were traded from distant lands. McKillop also tells us about the more coastal-inland trade of salt, seafood, and other marine resources." "Through the story of her own work and that of her students and volunteers, McKillop models both the research design and the field work that are required to interpret the civilizations of the past. She includes the adventure of discovery, the challenges of working in wild environments (from snakes and rising sea levels to falling coconuts), and the tedium of daily measured digs in a near-tropical setting."--BOOK JACKET.
