The Archaeological Sequence from Sipolite, Oaxaca, Mexico

Author(s): Donald L. Brockington

Year: 1966


During February and March, 1962, excavations were conducted at Sipolite, near Puerto angel, Oaxaca, Mexico. The purpose of the excavation was to establish a cultural sequence and to study its interconnections with other pasts of Mesoamerica and to investigate possible relationships with central and South America. This report examines several Mesoamerican ceramic traditions through both a descriptive and statistical analysis. The report is a revised version of a dissertation presented in 1965 to the Department of Anthropology, University of Wisconsin, in partial fulfillment of PhD requirements by the author.

The Archives of Archaeology Series is a 29-volume set jointly published by the University of Wisconsin Press and the Society for American Archaeology on opaque microcards, a now obsolete format. The Mississippi Valley Archaeology Center at the University of Wisconsin—La Crosse has digitized the original opaque microcards and made the digital copies available through tDAR. More information on the process of digitizing the series can be found in Joseph Tiffany’s 2012 article entitled "Digitizing the Archives of Archaeology Series" in the SAA Archaeological Record (
