    Excerpt from Ceramic Sequences at Tres Zapotes, Veracruz, Mexico

    Inthe 1940 season, it was felt that the most fruitful method of following up the previous year's work would be to make a careful stratigraphic excavation in the locality where the maximum deposit had been found. This work was entrusted to the present writer. In the course of the season, inspection suggested other parts of the site which might repay excavation, and a number of test pits were dug. In this way several places suitable for stratigraphic work were found, and a total of four stratigraphic trenches were dug.4 It is with the results of these four trenches that this report is primarily concerned.

    The present paper makes no pretense at outlining the culture-his tory of the former inhabitants of Tres Zapotes. Artifactual re mains, other than pottery, are so few and scattered that a functional interpretation of the culture is well-nigh impossible to make. In stead, the aim is to work out the history of the pottery complex only. The result will be to establish not a culture column, but a ceramic column covering the entire period or periods of occupation of the site. We should be able to place this ceramic column in time, ap proximately at least, on the basis of local evidence and comparisons with the better known Maya area and the Highland. This should give us a serviceable yardstick for placing other sites in the region, and thus open the way for orderly scientific research there. The definition of a Tres Zapotes ceramic column is thus the main goal of this report.

    To achieve this goal the material method of presentation is as follows: After a brief account of the site and its environs, the 1940 trenches will be described, a typological discussion of local wares will be given, and, finally, the vertical distributions of these wares in the stratigraphic trenches will be presented and summed up.
