Professor Kristin De Lucia’s Xaltocan Archaeology Research

By Department of Sociology and Anthropology on July 26, 2017

This wonderful article titled “Xaltocan Found Traces that Would Have Celebrated the New Fire” appeared in the newspaper Cronica from Mexico.  Professor of Archaeology Kristin DeLucia spent 8 weeks in the town of Xaltocan, located in the municipality of Nextlalpan, State of Mexico, where she worked on excavations this summer. The article appears originally in Spanish and features De Lucia who is entering her second year of teaching this fall.   The Colgate Scene is doing an article on this project as well.  Below is the original article which you can read in Spanish, and the translated version enjoy!!

The Spanish Newspaper version is here.
