About Michael E Smith

I am an archaeologist specializing in the Aztecs of central Mexico. I have directed fieldwork projects at Aztec sites in central Mexico, using remains from households to reconstruct economic and social dynamics in the Aztec imperial provinces. I also direct a transdisciplinary comparative research project on urban life from deep history to the present. Together with a group of colleagues at ASU we have researched neighborhoods, open spaces, and urban services.
