Proyecto Paleoambiente de la region de Teotihuacan

» Downloads & Basic Metadata

Summary

Between 1992 and 1999, 24 soil profiles were excavated in the Teotihuacan Valley, State of Mexico, in order to study the formation of soils, erosion, and human impact associated with prehispanic settlement, resource extraction, and production in the region. Although the prehispanic urban center of Teotihuacan represents a significant focus for our research, our initial goal was to establish a broad outline of the sequence of landscape transformation throughout the Holocene, based on the analysis of sediments and associated plant remains, including macrobotanical remains. Associated project resources: 1. Flotation samples processed (Excel file) 2. Results of macrobotanical analysis (Excel file) 3. Map of Study Area (.jpg file)
