Arizona State University Teotihuacan Research Laboratory
This collection serves as an "umbrella" for projects associated with the Teotihuacan Research Laboratory.
The Arizona State University Teotihuacan Research Lab is a curation, field lab, and analysis facility in the village of San Juan Teotihuacan, Mexico. The lab began as informal rentals of shared space by many of the large US projects working in the Teotihuacan region during the 1960s and 70s. The current formal facility was built and expanded using NSF funds, under the direction of Dr. George Cowgill. The lab currently holds significant collections from approximately two dozen archaeological projects at Teotihuacan or other areas of Central Mexico, ranging from the large regional surveys of the 1960s to currently active excavations.
The lab is currently manged by Dr. Michael Smith, in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change at Arizona State University.
