Poster Title: VOLCANIC ASH AND TARASCAN CERAMIC VARIABILITY: PETROGRAPHIC OBSERVATIONS
Author: AMY HIRSHMAN (West Virginia University)   
Date/Time: Sat., 1:45 PM-3:30 PM
Co-Author(s): AMY HIRSHMAN (West Virginia University) 
Abstract: Paste variability in prehispanic ceramics is an on-going conundrum for understanding the organization of prehistoric ceramic production within the Lake P√°tzcuaro Basin, Michoac√°n, Mexico, home of the Late Postclassic Tarascan state (AD 1350-1525). Framed against the geology of the Basin, this petrographic analysis seeks to corroborate the ethnographically observed practice of mixed soil paste recipes and the probable role of volcanic ash in the prehispanic ceramic production within the Basin.
