ArcheoProductions, Inc. develops and produces anthropology-related educational and entertainment projects in a variety of media.
Our films and publications focus on ritual foods and plants of the Americas. Through the lens of archaeology, we reveal how they intersect art, culture, and civilization over several thousands years. We investigate the ancient peoples of Central American, Mexico, Yucatan, and the American Southwest to tell our stories. And we discover how their descendants continue to intergrate these foods into present-day ceremonies and economies. Issues of ecology and sustainability underscore our explorations.
