What can the ruins of a pre-Aztec metropolis teach us about today’s cities?

November 24, 2015
David Carballo, a Boston University College of Arts & Sciences archaeology professor, has studied Mexico's Teotihuacan since 1999. He does this not by studying the grand pyramids and other remnants of Teo’s elite, but by studying a group of working class neighborhoods there called "Tlajinga." Carballo plans to study them with the aid of a $238,000 National Science Foundation (NSF) grant. Carballo said that understanding the economics and social structure of Tlajinga will give him clues to the economics and social structure of the city as a whole, which can teach us about present-day cities.
