Recently there has been increasing interest in historical archaeology on a worldwide scale. A number of papers have been published dealing with the emergence and growth of historical archaeology in Mexico in general, and in western and northern Mesoamerica specifically, considering the characteristics of diverse research strategies and the incorporation of different approaches as used by historical archaeology in these regions. Other studies have addressed historical archaeology briefly or focused on particular topics of interest. This article summarizes background information relevant to the development of historical archaeology in Mexico, and presents key research themes to examine the current status of historical archaeology in central and western Mesoamerica.
