7.4. Block 1 Test Excavations at Maymeja Q02-2

Test excavations in the Maymeja area of the Chivay source occurred at three units. Test Unit 1 in the Block 1 quarry area was placed on the north side of Maymeja in a corral with ample evidence on the surface of obsidian reduction, but the test unit results were of limited value and they will not be presented here. Test Unit 2 was placed in the debris pile associated with the Q02-2 Quarry pit. Test unit 3 was placed in a mound of flaked obsidian that appears to have been a quarry workshop. These latter two test units will be described in more detail.
