About the event

One of the more enigmatic artifact types found at the ancient Zapotec city of Monte Albán is the bat and jaguar-claw drinking cup. The immediate questions that spring to mind are: What were they imbibing from these vessels? And why? Larger issues emerge: what did the jaguar and bat signify to members of this venerable civilization? The answers to these queries take us to the dark side. Come and find out about them and the Zapotec dark side!
