The Oxcal program version 4.2 facilitated this process through the statistical identification of outliers and visual representations of probability distributions (28, Tables S1 and S2, and Datasets S1 and S2).Our ceramic analysis showed that the original chronology developed by Sabloff was sound and solid.Will they miss their connection, or will they find Love at First Flight?

Ceibal was originally investigated from 1964 through 1968 by the landmark expedition of the Harvard Project (HP) (16–18). Bachand excavated Punta de Chimino as part of the Aguateca Project and obtained 11 radiocarbon assays (19–21).The ceramic chronology established by Sabloff as part of this project provided a solid basis, on which we developed our current study. We began to work at Ceibal as the Ceibal-Petexbatun Archaeological Project (CPAP) in 2005.
A higher-resolution chronology may reveal a sequence of rapid transformations that are comprised within what appears to be a slow, gradual transition.Such a detailed understanding can provide critical insights into the nature of the social changes.Our intensive archaeological investigations at the center of Ceibal, Guatemala, have produced 154 radiocarbon dates, which represent the largest set of radiocarbon assays ever collected at a Maya site.The Ceibal dynasty emerged during the period of low population after the Preclassic collapse, suggesting that this dynasty was placed under the influence from, or by the direct intervention of, an external power.The processes of growth and decline of centralized polities represent a critical question in archaeological research.
