(p.349) 10 Conclusions
Ancient West Mexicos

Stephen A. Kowalewski

University Press of Florida

This concluding chapter seeks to tie the individual contributions to this volume into a coherent whole. Drawing on points raised in the various chapters, it summarizes critical data and provides a synthesis of the current research presented in constituent chapters that highlight spatial, temporal, and cultural diversity in ancient west Mexico. The author offers comments and observations on all chapters, highlighting common threads and lines of thought or evidence that bind the individual chapters together into a complete dialogue. It emphasizes the significance of the evidence from the west—presented in the volume—in crafting a more complex and nuanced understanding of both the west in particular and Mesoamerica as a whole. The chapter concludes by offering thoughts and suggestions for how future research may enhance archaeological understanding of this vast and understudied region.
