Urbanization and Religion in Ancient Central Mexico

The concluding chapter draws together the various lines of evidence presented in the book to demonstrate how urbanization and religion intersected in ancient central Mexico. It begins by showing how ritual space and action came together at La Laguna, using the author’s own excavations as the case study and focusing particularly on ritual practices and offerings made to consecrate and sacralize space. It then moves to a broader discussion of what elements of the prevailing cultural logic of central Mexico’s later Formative endured and what ones changed over time. It concludes by reiterating the major themes of the introductory chapter in light of the contents of the book.
