Abstract and Keywords

This chapter outlines the development and contributions of archaeological conservation done at the Templo Mayor Project since 1978. The advancements made in this field have been possible thanks to the work of various conservators who contribute their expertise from the moment of excavation to the posterior treatment and research on archaeological findings. They contribute a thorough understanding of the characteristics of different materials, their transformation and processes of alteration, and the different uses they will have within the Mexica archaeological collections. Conservators have designed and implemented a series of protocols that are applied to both new finds as well as objects that are part of the research collections and displays in the Templo Mayor Museum.

Keywords: conservation, protocols, Mexica, Templo Mayor, research collections
