The present study addresses this problem by presenting an analysis of obsidian flakes and blades recovered from a workshop refuse context at Kaminaljuyu, Guatemala. Technological and use wear analyses suggest that core-shaping by-products in the form of irregular percussion and pressure blades were used in craft activity.

The Kaminaljuyu obsidian is known as El Chayal. The trade in El Chayal obsidian in the early years of the Book of Mormon would have been down through the coast, but at the time period we are examining, it appears that a primary distribution channel had been developed whereby El Chayal obsidian was traded into what is now Veracruz, Mexico, which. Obsidian from El Chayal was exported widely as early as Jaredite times. El Chayal is not the only possible obsidian source near Kaminaljuyu, as these references make clear, but it is the most likely one. [John L.

Kaminaljuyu (pronounced / k æ m i n æ l ˈ h uː j uː /) is a Pre-Columbian site of the Maya civilization that was primarily occupied from BC to AD [citation needed] Kaminaljuyu has been described as one of the greatest of all archaeological sites in the New World by Michael Coe, although its remains today – a few mounds only – are far less impressive than other Maya sites. Kaminaljuyu's role as the principal polity within the Southern Highlands appears to have been closely linked to its control of obsidian distribution into the Maya Lowlands of the Peten from two sources in the Guatemalan Highlands, San Martín Jilotepeque and El Chayal, both located not far from Kaminaljuyu (Michels ; Nelson 39). Kaminaljuyu, in Guatemala’s highland central valley, is one of the region’s few surviving Mayan complexes of earthen construction. It is a unique example of exposed adobe architecture in the tropical highland—with elaborate buildings, some with funerary chambers, reliefs, and painted surfaces, highlighting the area’s wealth. The present study addresses this problem by presenting an analysis of obsidian flakes and blades recovered from a workshop refuse context at Kaminaljuyu, Guatemala.
