 Joyce Marcus, "On the Nature of the Mesoamerican City," in Evon Z. Vogt and Richard M. Levanthal, editors, Prehistoric Settlement Patterns: Essays in Honor of Gordon R. Willey, Albuquerque and Cambridge: University of New Mexico Press and Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology. Harvard University, 1984, pages 206, 239-42. On city planning, consider Teotihuacan, where the essential plan was laid out virtually from the first and then followed for many centuries; see George J. Cowgill, "Teotihuacan, Internal Militaristic Competition, and the Fall of the Classic Maya," in Maya Archaeology and Ethnohistory, Norman Hammond and Gordon R. Willey, editors, Austin: University of Texas Press, 1979, page 53.
