This monograph reports the results of the QuiriguAi Project Site Periphery Program, five seasons (1975-1979) of archaeological survey and excavation in the 96 km2 immediately adjoining the classic Maya site of QuiriguAi. Ashmore identifies and helps us understand where and how the people of QuiriguAi lived. She presents detailed material evidence in two data catalogues, for the floodplain settlement adjoining QuiriguAi and for sites in the wider periphery. The work situates QuiriguAi settlement firmly in a regional context, benefiting from the extraordinary abundance of information amassed in southeastern Mesoamerica since 1979. It sheds new light on the political, economic, and social dynamics of the region including the sometimes-fractious interactions between QuiriguAi, its overlords at Copan, and people elsewhere in the Lower Motagua Valley and beyond.
