Central Mexican Ceramic Sourcing

Deb Nichols and I are currently working with the largest sample of Early and Middle Formative ceramics ever chemically analyzed in central Mexico.  Part of this work is to start a regional reference database for the earliest Mesoamerican ceramics in the region.  We have also already identified a substantial interregional exchange network connecting several of the earliest sites in central Mexico, which helps to understand the rise of complex society in this important culture region.
