Arqueol. Iberoam.


Abstract
A new statistical method allows one to measure the degree or level of urban development through the mortuary record. It is another firm step in the archaeology of social phenomena when inferring the parameters that explain the behavior of ancient societies. As in other cases, the material evidence from pre-Hispanic Mesoamerica is provided to empirically compare and validate its results.

Keywords
Urban development; mortuary record; archaeology; social phenomena.
