Malpaso Valley - La Quemada Project
PROJECT Ben Nelson. Arizona State Universtity.

For over 15 years, Mexican and American archaeologists and students have dug ancient ruins, walked the high desert landscape, and worked in laboratories to understand the rise and fall of La Quemada, Zacatecas. We want to know why societies become complex, developing social hierarchies with specialized economic, political, and religious roles for their members. Why do civilizations expand? Northern Mexico's ancient past is an ideal context for studying these questions. During the period A.D....

Proyecto Petrografía de la Cerámica de La Quemada, Zacatecas
PROJECT Andrea Torvinen. Ben Nelson.

This project seeks to identify the productions zones of several decorated ceramic wares that are hypothesized to have circulated within the Zacatecas region of Northwest Mexico during the Epiclassic period (600-900 C.E.). The study focuses on decorated wares recovered from the site of La Quemada and stylistically similar wares recovered from other centers in the region. A sample of 806 sherds from nine centers and one site cluster, which represents seven distinct occupational subareas...
