Archaeology Webinar: Pre-Hispanic History of San Miguel de Allende and Surrounding Areas


Part two was held June 8th at 5pm. Contact us if you weren’t able to attend or have suggestions for upcoming presentations!

Did you know? San Miguel is famous for more than its agreeable climate, luxury accommodations and fine dining?

Once thought to be on the fringes or even outside of the cultural realm of Mesoamerica, San Miguel de Allende, in the state of Guanajuato and the surrounding areas are now considered an integral part of this region. Join us for a special webinar on one of the hottest topics!

Archaeologist and acclaimed tour guide Albert Coffee unveils recent revelations and discoveries on the prehispanic history of San Miguel de Allende and the surrounding areas. Tune in to learn about the history, art, architecture, cosmovisión, religion and burial practices of ancient Mesoamerica and the cultures that once occupied this unique region of central Mexico.

Presented by: Albert Coffee
