New blog on Postclassic urban sites in Michoacan

Marion Forest has just started an informative blog on "Le Projet Uacusecha." This project is investigating some very interesting urban sites in an area of lava flows near Zacapu, Michoacan.As you can see from the photo, many of the stone foundation walls are very well preserved at these sites. This is an important project for expanding our understanding of the forms and organization of urbanism in Postclassic Mesoamerica.

Gotta love that place!!!
I was just there in May of 2011 and felt the peacefulness of the area . Of course as I walked, I discover more and more beauty of the area. I just want to take a month off and take a long trip down to Zacapu again.
