Archival Survey Feature or Collection Forms (2012)
These are pdf files of the original survey feature/collection forms. Each survey feature was recorded on a form and assigned a unique number, and, if the feature was collected, that number pertains to the surface collection. Some features have more than one collection, in which case additional feature/collection numbers were assigned. Rarely numbers were subsequently de-assigned, and might then be assigned to a different feature/collection later, but occasionally numbers were not used...

Avances y perspectivas de la arqueología del Centro de Veracruz. Región de las Grandes Montañas. (2016)
A pesar de lo escarpado del terreno, entre montañas y valles, se asentaron grupos humanos en distintos periodos cronológicos desde el Preclásico hasta la Colonia. Algunos de esos valles permitieron la comunicación entre los poblados cercanos, otros, entre regiones geográficas más distantes como la Costa del Golfo, el Altiplano Central y la región oaxaqueña, evidenciando presencia o influencia olmeca, teotihuacana, nahua y costeñas, en los sitios hasta ahora conocidos. Por estar en un punto...
Bajo Hornos Reef, Veracruz: a depositional trap for ships and related cultural material (2013)
From the arrival of Cortes in 1519 until the 20th century, Veracruz was one of the most important ports in the Americas. In addition to its role in transatlantic trade, it also played an essential role in maritime relations between Mexico, the Antilles and the northern Gulf of Mexico. In the 80´s, late 90´s and 2010 diving surveys carried out at Bajo Hornos reef by the Underwater Archeology team (SAS) of the Mexican National Institute for Anthropology and History (INAH), yielded a variety of...
Becoming Divine: Stone Sculpture and Deity Impersonation in Classic Veracruz Visual Culture (2018)
Recent study of an hacha from Classic-period Veracruz in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art reveals that hachas and palmas may have been used as costume elements in ritual performances related to the ballgame. As costume elements, these sculptures would have allowed actors to assume the identity of captives, rulers, or deities. This accords well with iconographic evidence of ballgame-related ritual performances in Veracruz, and suggests comparisons with artworks from other...

Changing Art? Changing Identity?: Visual Culture in Ancient Veracruz during the Late Classic-Early Postclassic Transition (2016)
Group identity is visible in the archaeological record in the form of discrete burial practices, site planning, ceramic and artifact assemblages, settlement patterns, and architecture. Yet notions of ethnic identity are multi-layered and complex; the more so during periods of intense migration and social upheaval . The Late Classic to Early Postclassic transition was one such period, characterized by observable changes in practices and materials. In Veracruz (at sites such as El Tajin, Las...
