dc.description.abstractGordon Willey pioneered settlement archaeology in the Virú Valley of Peru. While working with the Peabody in the 1950’s he most notably applied this methodology at the Maya site of Barton Ramie. Barton Ramie was uncharacteristically devoid of an administrative center, making the site appear to be an autonomous residential community and thus a suitable subject for his research. For many years, Willey and subsequent researchers excluded another site that lay directly south of the Belize River, Lower Dover. Research of the Lower Dover settlement took place in the 2013 and 2014 archaeology field seasons. The investigations into the settlement focused on a 2 kilometer radius around the Lower Dover administrative center. This study seeks to elucidate weather Lower Dover served as the administrative center of Barton Ramie. However at the present the chronology of Lower Dover is unknown. There is currently no evidence of early construction in the site core.
