IHAP Notes from the Field: Week 6

Excavating the complete vessels

Excavating the complete vessels

Week 6 was an exciting one for the Izapa Household Archaeology Project. On Monday we opened up excavations at a new section of the site. The new excavation units are on a new mound discovered during the Izapa Regional Settlement Project lidar remapping of the site (Rosenswig et al. 2013). The setting is spectacular; the mound has a beautiful view of the nearby Tacaná and Tajamulco volcanoes. We already finding great things; day one we found a concentration of almost complete vessels!

We also continued with our news coverage this week, as national news team Televisa stopped by to cover our excavations at the site.
