Scope and Content

The Cerro Portezuelo Archives is a result of excavations conducted by George Brainerd in 1954 and 1955 and by H. B. Nicholson in 1957. The site is located near the ancient shores of Lake Texcoco in Central Mexico (now Mexico City) and spans the Classic to Post-Classic time periods (A.D. 350 - 1500). The city began during the florescence of the larger nearby city of Teotihuacan but survived long after Teotihuacan's fall and into the Aztec Empire. This collection's ceramic objects represent the most complete and unbroken sequence for the region, making it an invaluable research tool for understanding the turbulent political and social climate during Mesoamerican times. The objects held in the Archaeology Collections Facility includes ceramics, spindle whorls, figurines, stamps, chipped stone, ancestral burials, and memorial objects. Collection documentation include an inventory, maps, photographs and negatives, artifact descriptions and analysis, field notes, correspondence, burial accession records, progress reports, and a published report co-authored by Frederic Hicks and H.B. Nicholson.
Following Brainerd's death in 1956, Nicholson agreed to complete the project and conducted further excavations in 1957. The National Science Foundation provided funds to analyze the excavated materials in 1961 and the following year a brief surface reconnaissance of the site and surrounding areas was conducted under the direction of Dr. Clement Meighan.
