Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
This book is the second volume of the report on excavations at the Aztec-period sites of Cuexcomate and Capilco, carried out in 1986. This book is the first complete report of the entire range of artefacts excavated from Aztec domestic contexts. It is a descriptive report that focuses on the artefacts in addition to reporting the system of analysis and the artefact sampling program. Ceramics are described in two chapters, with tables on quantities of various types and attributes. One surprising result isthe wide range of special ceramic forms present in domestic middens, including musical instruments, other ritual objects, and production-related objects. Chipped stone artifacts are covered; although several thousand pieces of obsidian were recovered, very few were manufactured at these sites. Ground-stone artifacts, metal objects and, finally, flora and fauna are also presented here.
