A Great Experience!
What a successful experience this summer has been with the closing of the 2018 field season of the Project Plaza of the Columns Complex. Beginning July 2nd, a small army came together to accomplish quite a bit: six archaeologists carried out excavations in five key areas of interest, another archaeologist resumed his extensive survey of the Teotihuacan Valley, and two international students along with 23 fieldworkers and 13 lab personnel have supported the team during these important activities. In addition, several research specialists have already arrived with more to come to study the plethora of collected archaeological materials and samples that will reveal even more interesting information about the past of this region.
Our goal is to increase and diffuse knowledge, and we only hope to continue sharing our experiences and valuable work with you after each season.
We are just about to close excavations, and all the project team members look forward to contributing more personalized experiences soon!
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.
