Mesoweb is devoted to the ancient cultures of Mexico and adjacent Central America, including the Olmec, Zapotec, Mixtec, Teotihuacan, Toltec, Aztec, and Maya (reserving the word Mayan for the language and the word Maya for the people and their culture).

Reports of errors (spelling, typography, grammar, or fact) cheerfully solicited. Please note that some errors in the online versions of documents previously published in print were retained intentionally. Some inconsistency, as with the serial comma, is the result of deference to the wide range of authorial styles.

Mesoweb is proud to have created the websites of the Pre-Columbian Art Research Institute (PARI) and the Boundary End Center (BEC).
