  • The main activities of this summer's UA archeoloJ ical research team are summed up, along with the
    reason for their urgency, in this photo showing the 1671 chapel of Calvary atop the east pyramid
    of the Adobe group. Increasing population is cau sing much new house-building in l\fitla, and the
    two ne:w adobe h~uses at center right were built this year. Exploration of the Adobe Group, not
    otherwise so pressing, thus was made a now-or-never matter. In the long trench below the group of
    people at center left there is visible a cross-secti on of the adobe "adoratory" or ceremonial plat.
    form -once covered with stone and plaster- at the center of the patio. At far left the church of
    Mitla, placed amid the building of the Group of the Columns, is visible.
    Another site visi ted by the UA archeology group is Zaachila, Oaxaca,
    \vhere this gentleman sculptured in plaster was admired on
    the wall

    was one of the conquering Mixtec rulers in the 15th century, not long before the Spanish conquest put an end to Zapotec·Mixtec wars over possession of the Valley of Oaxaca.
