Summary
Before the authors' research, Chocolá was no more than an intriguing legend. Chocolá's apparent political links to the greatest Preclassic southern Maya area polity, Kaminaljuyu, would make any discovery about Chocolá conceivably vital to a better understanding of Maya origins and New World archaeology, as both ancient cities are located in the Southern Maya Region. Two facts led researchers to search more specifically for the material bases for Chocolá's rise to power: 1. Mesoamerica's greatest rainfall, 2. cacao groves around the modern village lying atop the ancient city. This work examines these issues.
