Abstract

Dominating Mexico’s Valley of Oaxaca for almost a thousand years, the people of Monte Alban, known as the Zapotecs, constructed an urban settlement that acted as one of the main centers of commerce for the communities of Mesoamerica. Archaeologists have concluded that Zapotecs occupied this city-state from 500 B.C. to approx. 900 A.D. and left a legacy of famous ceramic artwork and impressive architecture. Using archaeological, anthropological, and historical evidence as both primary and secondary sources, this project presents a cultural investigation of Monte Alban’s impact on neighboring regions in the Oaxacan Valley.
