About this item

“Illuminates a multiethnic neighborhood within one of the world’s greatest urban developments of ancient times. Presents some of the most sophisticated new scientific techniques that are allowing scholars to see the details of life in the ancient world in a vivid dimension that has not before been possible.”—Cynthia Robin, author of Everyday Life Matters: Maya Farmers at Chan
“Manzanilla has been, and still is, a pioneer in the application of recent technology to aid in the interpretation of archaeological remains.”—Rebecca Storey, author of Life and Death in the Ancient City of Teotihuacan: A Modern Paleodemographic Synthesis
“Vital for scholars of Mesoamerican archaeology and the ‘Classic’ period in particular.”—Ian Farrington, author of Cusco: Urbanism and Archaeology in the Inka World
Like modern-day New York City, the ancient city of Teotihuacan in Central Mexico was built by a flood of immigrants who created a complex and diverse urban landscape. This detailed volume analyzes 116 burials in Teopancazco, a powerful neighborhood that controlled most of the city’s intake and distribution of foreign raw materials. Applying sophisticated bioarchaeological techniques such as isotope analysis, trace elements, and DNA profiling, this holistic study gives life to the population of the earliest known multiethnic metropolis.
