Archaeology Day Exhibit

International Archaeology Day (October 20, 2018) is a celebration of archaeology and the thrill of discovery. To celebrate this year Cal State LA’s Mesoamerican Archaeology Laboratory provided photographs of Cal State LA student field research and ancient artifacts from Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras. The display is set out to bring awareness of archeological fieldwork, laboratory work, report writing, and student preparation for presentation at professional conferences.

The display includes the Mesoamerican and Colonial Mexico rare book collection from Cal State LA Special Collections and Archives, which is approximately 7,000 books and documents. The collection is divided into three large groups, The Mesoamerican, the colonial, and the Independent periods that form the sequence of the history of Mexico form the 16th to 20th century.

Curated by Jocelyn Acosta, Mesoamerican Archaeology Graduate Student and Student Lead at Special Collections and Archives.
