The Mesoamerican collections consist of both systematically excavated and donated materials. Mesoamerica includes the countries of Mexico, Belize, Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador and various islands. Many of these artifacts are associated with a specific archaeological site, while others are identified only by cultural group or geographical area. Cultural groups include Maya and Olmec, sites are La Venta, Jalisco, Colima. The geographic areas are Valley of Mexico, Veracruz, Oaxaca, and Central Plateau.
The associated images and contextual information are representative of our larger holdings from Mesoamerica. The information associated with each image includes the catalog number, geographic region, cultural affiliation (if known), size and donor.
