Basin Enterprise: the Next Generations

Author(s): Patricia Fournier; Cynthia Otis Charlton

Year: 2019


This is an abstract from the "The Legacies of The Basin of Mexico: The Ecological Processes in the Evolution of a Civilization, Part 1" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.

The Basin of Mexico book elucidated for a broader audience the work and philosophy of William Sanders and his first generation of collaborators and students and has influenced many generations of Mesoamerican scholars since. We draw on the broad studies of long-term work carried out under this legacy in the Teotihuacan Valley Otumba region and in the Mezquital Valley and look at how modern climate research such as that of Lachniet et al. may help to inform our archaeological and ethnographic understanding of the development of Otomi groups there and their varied response to the challenges of their arid environments.
