 SOIL SAMPLES AT THE MAYA SITE OF CHUNCHUCMIL MAY CHANGE VIEWS ON THE MAYA
Listeros,

A study by soil scientists at Brigham Young University at Chunchucmil
will revolutionize Maya studies. Soil levels at the Maya site of
Chunchucmil have phosporus levels 40 times higher than background
levels providing evIdence of a market economy and calling into
question the concept that the Mayas distributed through a tribute
system. Chunchucmil was 17 miles from the 2nd largest salt works in
Mesoamerica and lies in an extremely forbidding place for agriculture
yet reached 45,000 in population.

The soil survey found that the Chunchucmil Maya carried salt over
sacbes in a long distance trading network in return for food.

The Salt Lake Tribune has the story here;
