Cataloging and creating digital images of archaeological artifacts and associated excavation records from the early Maya site of Cerros in Belize leading to a searchable database, accessible through the Internet.

The Florida Museum recently received a substantial collection from Cerros, an important Maya site in Belize excavated in the the 1970s in a project led by David Freidel. Cerros, best known from its Late Preclassic settlement (350 BCE-CE 150), has a significant Terminal Classic occupations (CE 850-1150) and a smaller Late Postclassic component (CE 1300-1550). The government of Belize transferred this collection permanently to the Florida Museum in exchange for proper curation and broad access for research. The collection came to the museum with field catalogues, a variety of whole pots and reconstructed ceramics, ceramic sherd type collections and entire units of excavated ceramic sherds, and a range of other archaeological materials. The Cerros Research Online Catalogue will allow broad access to field catalogues and dissertations, ceramic type collections, whole and reconstructed vessels and "small finds" that include deposits of lithics, jade, metalwork, and worked shell and bone.
