Located in south-central Veracruz state, the El Carrizal site in Mexico is one of the latest archaeological excavation sites profiled on the Archaeology magazine website. Offered as part of their "Interactive Dig" series, this particular dig started in 2009, and the team leading the work here includes dedicated archaeologists from Mexico and other parts of Latin America, and a clutch of local high school students. The site includes updates in the "From the Field" area, an introductory section ("Beyond The Trenches"), and frequent posts on the progress of their work. One rather nice feature here is that almost all of the material is available in Spanish, as well as English. Visitors are encouraged to leave comments on the site, and there's also a search engine here on the left-hand side of the homepage.
