Abstract

[English] In this paper we summarize more than a decade of interdisciplinary work at Calakmul, including (1) the mapping project, which has covered more than 30 km2; (2) the excavation project, which has uncovered major structures and tombs in the center of the city; (3) the epigraphic project, whose goal is to study the hieroglyphic texts and relate them to the archaeological evidence; (4) the analysis of the architecture, ceramics, and chipped stone to define sacred and secular activity areas and chronological stages; and (5) a focus on the ecology, hydrology, and paleoclimatology of Calakmul and its environs with the aim of understanding more fully its periods of development and decline. // [Spanish] En este articulo resumimos más de una década de trabajo interdisciplinario en Calakmul que incluye (1) nuestro proyecto de mapeo de 30 km2 del sitio para definir su patrón de asentamiento; (2) el proyecto de excavación que ha revelado algunas de las estructuras más grandes de Calakmul como también varias tumbas en el centro de la ciudad; (3) el proyecto epigráfico cuya meta es estudiar los textos jeroglíficos y relacionarlos con datos arqueológicos, (4) el análisis de la arquitectura, cerámica, y litica para definir áreas de actividades seculares y sagradas, y etapas cronológicas y (5) estudios sobre ecología, hidrología y paleoclimatología de Calakmul y sus alrededores para entender mejor sus períodos de desarrollo y declinación.
