Teotihuacan was the largest city in the Americas during its apogee in the first half of the first millennium AD and is remarkable for its monumental urban core, highly planned residential sectors, diverse economic activities, and multi-ethnic composition. David Carballo's talk examines urbanism at the city and the social fabric of daily life, viewed particularly through recent investigations at a southern ward known as the Tlajinga District. He will touch on domestic economy, social status, and processes of urban planning along the Street of the Dead.
