Definition: One of the "young turks" of the New Archaeology, Kent Flannery began his career working on the origins of agriculture with Robert Braidwood, but soon began to concentrate on Mesoamerica, on the origins of agriculture in the Valley of Oaxaca, central Mexico. Flannery is an elegant and approachable writer, which are none too common in our field.
