Producción artesanal y especializada en Mesoamérica: Areas de actividad y procesos productivos

edited by Linda R. Manzanilla and Kenneth G. Hirth

The study of specialized craft production requires systematic, horizontal strategies for exposing the archaeological contexts that reveal evidence of association between tools, debitage, raw materials, and unfinished objects. This volume takes on the production of lithic tools, objects of personal adornment including semi-precious stones and marine mollusks, costumes and headdresses, fibers, figurines, pottery, and salt. New methods are derived from experimental archaeology and microscopic observation use wear and traces of manufacture. Most papers in Spanish.
