Current Research

Michael Ohnersorgen works at the Chacalilla archaeological site on the coast of Nayarit, Mexico, studying a phenomenon known as the Aztatlán tradition. Focusing his research on the political and economic aspects of a site known to be a cultural center from roughly 850-900 A.D to 1300-1400 A.D., he is interested in the complex iconography of this tradition.
