What Lies between the Dots: Exploring the Archaeology of the Broader Basin of Mexico Landscape
Author(s): Charles Frederick
This is an abstract from the "The Legacies of The Basin of Mexico: The Ecological Processes in the Evolution of a Civilization, Part 2" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
The Basin of Mexico survey established a diachronic palette of settlement locations that has served as the baseline for a wide range of studies. But settlements only comprise the nucleus of the most visible form of past human activities. A wide range of activities, agrarian and otherwise, populate the vast expanses between the settlements identified by the survey. This presentation will examine the challenges of examining broad-scale long-term land use in a variety of landscape settings in order to delineate those places where the greatest insights can be made.
