Prehistoric social complexity emerged within the Rivas region of Pacific Nicaragua between 300 and 800 AD, followed by a restructuring of this organization from 800 to 1522 AD. The placement of Rivas within a greater sociopolitical and economic context indicates that interregional relationships were a significant factor in the sociopolitical development of the region. However, assessment of the extent to which these relationships were a factor is limited by the current state of Nicaraguan archaeology and to a lesser extent that of northwest Costa Rica. It has become increasingly necessary to refocus research energies within this part of lower Central America at a purely regional level in order to understand better the cultural forces operating throughout its prehistory.
