touring Teotihuacán

It’s been ages since I’ve blogged about anything to do with one of my interests and inspirations, archaeology. Just now I’ve been traveling, virtually that is, through the Teotihuacán in Mexico
Archaeologist Richard A. Diehl, professor emeritus at the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa, worked at the massive ruins of Teotihuacán when he was a student at Pennsylvania State University working with William T. Sanders. Recently, he assembled a walking tour of the site, sharing his accumulated knowledge and admiration for the site with us.

It’s like a personal guided tour by an expert using 42 gorgeous photos by several photographers. Plus more links and photos to keep one enraptured for a while. I’ve not had the pleasure, yet, to visit any of the many archaeological sites in Mexico in real life but this gives me a good idea what it might be like, though my poor knees would not manage all those steps!

Thanks to Kris Hurst for this!
