92. The Last Saltmakers of Nexquipayac, Mexico: An Archaeological Ethnography
Author(s): Jeffrey R. Parsons
In the 1980s, a few traditional saltmakers were still manufacturing several kinds of salt in the eastern Valley of Mexico. This in-depth study of the methodology of this dying craft includes a comparative study of pre-industrial saltmaking around the world, and considers the implications of this knowledge for future archaeological research.
