Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at University of California, 2001 - Art - 132 pages
As the center for the religious cult of Quetzalcoatl, Cholula played a prominent role in shaping events of central Mexico's Postclassic period. This book provides an innovative new classification of Cholula ceramics, based on artifact assemblages from primary depositiona context recovered from the UA-1 excavatprovided to construct a new classification system. These types are then seriated to using collections from house floors and trash middens to suggest a new sequence spanning the Tlachihualtepetl (700-1200 CE) and Cholollan (1200-1550 CE) periods.
