40. Excavations at San José Mogote 1: The Household Archaeology

Author(s): Kent V. Flannery, Kent V. Flannery, Joyce Marcus, with a multidimensional scaling of houses by Robert G. Reynolds


San José Mogote, an early village and chiefly center in Mexico’s Oaxaca Valley, was excavated over a fifteen-year period. This volume reports in detail on every Early and Middle Formative house recovered, including a complete inventory of artifacts, features, plants, animal bones, and craft raw materials by house, with extensive piece-plotting of items on house floors and dooryards. Reynolds’ multidimensional scaling confirms the presence of distinct wards within the community. Future volumes will cover the public, religious, and mortuary archaeology.
