This web portal is designed, managed and maintained by Dr. Destiny Crider while conducting dissertation research at Arizona State University. The site is now hosted at Luther College with sections that continue to be maintained at the Archaeological Research Institute at Arizona State University.
This began in effort to build ceramic concordance tables between Central Mexican pottery types as part of my dissertation project. The tremendous support and interest of fellow researchers not only in the Basin of Mexico - but also in neighboring areas prompted my expansion of ceramic consideration to new areas outside my specific research program.
It is my hope that the community of archaeologists and researchers in Central Mexico will communicate across national and state boundaries and find some usefulness in this resource.
