Subsurface Spatial Signatures of the Quotidian from the Olmec Heartland: Insights from Ground-penetrating Radar Surveys of the Los Soldados site, Veracruz.
Archaeological examinations of the Olmec civilization in the tropical lowlands of Mexico have focused largely on the elite and grandiose aspects of the society. Research conducted through the PAAP instead chose to explore non-monumental aspects of the Olmec. Investigations of the Los Soldados site in southern Veracruz included ground-penetrating radar (GPR) surveys of four areas. Although GPR is a geophysical method not often successful in tropical lowland settings, it proved successful in the delineation of several features that are interpreted as refuse pits and living surfaces. We present these findings within the broader interpretive context of domestic features at Los Soldados and the Olmec region.
