Largest Maya Figurine Workshop Uncovered in Guatemala

Archaeologists at the SAA conference this year have announced the discovery of the largest Maya figurine workshop ever uncovered. It dates to 750-900 CE. The workshop was found at the site of Aragon in Guatemala. The workshop itself was destroyed by construction work,  but 400 figurine fragments and molds, and thousands of ceramic pieces have been recovered. The site lasted past the general Maya collapse in the region.
