After doing graduate work in zoology, Flannery became a zooarchaeologist on projects led by Robert Braidwood (Iran), Frank Hole (Iran), Michael Coe (Guatemala), Richard MacNeish (Mexico and Peru), and Joyce Marcus (Peru). From 1966 to 1980 he directed the University of Michigan “Prehistory and Human Ecology of the Valley of Oaxaca, Mexico.” This project (co-directed by Joyce Marcus from 1973 onward) investigated the origins of agriculture at Guilá Naquitz Cave and Cueva Blanca, and the origins of village life and social inequality at San José Mogote, Huitzo, and Abasolo in Oaxaca, Mexico.
