The following are some notes that I have uncovered in my personal archives. This will give you knowledge of Latin America from an academic perspective. I am trying to increase content to add readers in this blog game that can be cheapened with sensationalism and other sell-out gimmicks. I have uncovered a lot of my old work from 20-25 years ago and will preserve them in this internet platform. Enjoy:

Swasey Pottery, Chert, Flint Art, Obsidian.
