The Cave Beneath the Sun Pyramid, Teotihuacan: Narrative of a Reverentially Terminated Mountain-Cave
La Cueva Debajo de la Pirámide del Sol, Teotihuacan: Narrativa de una Montaña-Cueva Reverencialmente Terminada


by Rebecca Sload

First comprehensive account of Teotihuacan’s Sun Pyramid cave, explored by the Teotihuacan Mapping Project in 1978. This volume focuses on the study of initial cave use, including absolute and ceramic dating, and on a hypothesized reverential termination of the cave. The Sun Pyramid mountain-cave is contextualized within a framework of other ancient Mesoamerican mountain-caves and within the relationalities of monumentality, practice theory, and animism. Complete text in English and Spanish.
