Prehistoric Settlement Patterns in the Texcoco Region, Mexico

Jeffrey R. Parsons

In this volume, archaeologist Jeffrey R. Parsons presents research based on an extensive 1967 survey of the Texcoco Region in the Valley of Mexico. The sites are organized by time period, from Middle Formative to Aztec. Parsons describes the sites in detail and compares them to those of the same time periods in the Teotihuacan Valley and the Valley of Mexico in general. Finally, he includes an analysis of settlement patterns and agricultural systems in the area. Two appendices contain descriptions of ceramics used for identification and tlatel descriptions.
