Hello, everyone! We had an amazing turnout at the SAA’s 83rd Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, and had a wonderful time sharing with you just a snippet of our multidisciplinary work at the Plaza of the Columns Complex. On behalf of the PPCC team – past, present, and future – thank you so much for all the support! We resume excavations this summer and hope to continue exploring and sharing our findings straight to you.
We are very happy to announce that we have started working on the exploration of the Plaza of the Columns. So far, we are a team of 20 archaeologists – 13 are out in the field excavating different interest areas of the Complex, 2 are performing surface surveys of the Teotihuacan valley, and 5 others have dedicated labwork analyzing botanical and skeletal remains of multiple species recovered in previous excavation seasons. This first half of the season began on June 12th and will conclude on the last day of July, and the second half of the season will begin in early August and will finish by mid-October.
All of us who make up this team commit to our archaeological research with the aim to achieve the best results possible, and in doing so, we invite the public to follow along with our progress in uncovering this Mesoamerican society.
