Tlajinga, Teotihuacan, Mexico

Summary

Investigations of the Proyecto Arqueológico Tlajinga Teotihuacan (PATT) focus on the Tlajinga district, a cluster of neighborhoods in the southern part of Teotihuacan, Mexico. The area was inhabited by a lower socioeconomic stratum, was the locus of intensive utilitarian craft production, and is bisected by the city’s central artery—named the Street of the Dead by the later Aztecs, who viewed Teotihuacan as a mythical place of origins and an archetypal city. Research goals of the PATT scale from the level of the household to the level of the urbanization of the city as a whole. They include understanding the tempo and processes of urban growth; the dynamics between central civic planning and neighborhoods; and the domestic economy and daily life of the common-status families who resided in the district and represent the urban experience for a majority of the city’s inhabitants.
