Barton Ramie
was noted for its pottery making, predominantly “Mount Hope” and “Floral Park”. All indications are that the construction phases identified so far date to Protoclassic and very Early Classic times, which would be anywhere from 100 B.C. to about 250-350 A.D. Given the dearth of Barton Creek overlap, the common occurrence of Mount Hope and Floral Park pottery in core, and the presence, so far, of only two Peten Gloss wares, tentatively bracket the site within ca. 50 B.C. to A.D. 300.
