Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This study, based primarily on historical reconstruction, describes the arrival of the Itza on the Yucatan peninsula during the early Postclassic period, their expansion into the interior with the establishment of their capital at Chichen Itza, and their eventual control over most of northern Yucatan. The authors discuss the relationship of the Itza to the trading center and city of Coba both militarily and as trade competitors in the region. Much of the evidence for the presence of the Itza at various sites on the peninsula is based on the occurrence of Sotuta phase ceramics, which is characteristic of this culture.
