    schema:description ""In recent years the Cochuah region, the ancient breadbasket of the north-central Yucatecan Lowlands, has been documented and analyzed by a number of archaeological and cultural anthropological researchers. This book, the first major collection of data from those investigations, presents and analyzes the researchers' findings on more than eighty sites and puts them in the context of the findings of other investigations from outside the area. The book begins with archaeological investigations and continues with research on living peoples. Within the archaeological sections, historic and colonial chapters build upon those concerned with the Classic Maya, revealing the ebb and flow of settlement through time in the region as peoples entered, left, and modified their ways of life based upon external and internal events and forces. In addition to discussing the history of anthropological research in the area and providing a general overview of its occupation over time, the contributors address such topics as modern women's reproductive choices, the issue of site boundary definition, caves as holy places, settlement shifts through time, and the reuse of spaces through time"--"@en ;
