Cueva Blanca: Social Change in the Archaic of the Valley of Oaxaca

Kent V. Flannery and Frank Hole

Cueva Blanca, a cave in the side of a volcanic tuff cliff in Oaxaca, Mexico, contains evidence of thousands of years of human use. Archaeologists Kent V. Flannery and Frank Hole excavated a series of Archaic sites in the Valley of Oaxaca, including Cueva Blanca, as part of a project on the prehistory and human ecology of this region of Mexico. This cave yielded artifacts from the Late Pleistocene through the Early Archaic to the Late Archaic.
