Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Plunket and Uruñuela excavated at Tetimpa, a village in a region that was buried by volcanic ash. When people evacuated, they left behind many of their domestic artifacts, providing archaeologists a unique look at rural life that includes agricultural fields. Plunket and Uruñuela describe several house compounds they found along with the artifacts, features, and some interesting volcano effigy shrines within the compounds. They found that domestic space was standardized and that the layout was used in later apartment compounds at Teotihuacan.
