Event speaker: 
Edith Ortiz Díaz (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México)

'The metallurgical work in Pre-Columbian America achieved a high degree of development. Even though in the Mesoamerican area the development of metallurgy started very late, during the post- Classic period (600 A.D.). Nevertheless, various techniques, such as lost wax casting and false filigree were rapidly developed and improved. The objective of this presentation is to analyze the different metal traditions in the Maya area and Oaxaca.'
