Excavations continued as usual this week. We finished up some of our long-open excavation units in preparation for opening up new pits next week. This week’s highlight was a visit from Lizzie Wade, a writer for Science magazine. Lizzie plans to write an article featuring the Izapa Household Archaeology Project within a article on the archaeology of neighborhoods.
Update: Wade’s article was released on May 16, 2014. The article is now free to access and can be found here: http://www.sciencemag.org/content/344/6185/684.full
