Summary of the ceramics

            The ceramic evidence at Muyil shows that a small population first arrived near the end of the Middle Formative. This population grew slowly over the following nine hundred years of the Late Formative, Protoclassic, and Early Classic. During the Late Classic/Terminal Classic the population grew more rapidly. Ceramics of this period and later may be associated with the use of specific platforms and masonry structures. In the Early Postclassic, masonry construction continued, and in the Late Postclassic, the abundance of Navula Unslipped ceramics spread over the entire site demonstrates a growing populace, living across the maximum known extent of the site.
