Excavaciones en Gualupita

by Suzannah B. Vaillant and George C. Vaillant

The first Spanish translation of the classic report on Gualupita, published in English in 1934. In 1932 the excavations at Gualupita, Cuernavaca, Morelos, were part of the fifth season of the stratigraphic research carried out by the American Museum of Natural History. Suzannah and George Valliant had the goal of studying the links between the cultural developments of the Late Ticoman period and Teotihuacan. While in Mexico, however, the authors had the opportunity to see a vast figurine collection recovered by the Bourgeois sisters in the Gualupita neighborhood of Cuernavaca. When the Vaillants noticed similarities amongst specimens found at El Arbolillo, Ticoman, and Zacatenco, they immediately embarked on a study to understand the links between the Valley of Mexico and foreign cultures. They established the types and temporal markers of Gualupita I, II, and III, and they also synthesized their knowledge on the cultures of the Valley of Mexico and correlated them with 23 other groups or tribes. In Spanish.
