|Most every community has a stone sculpture standing around its plaza or still lying in its surrounding fields.
The INAH, Mexico´s Institute for Anthropology and History, keeps records of archaeological finds in Mexico, and is totally
overwhelmed. Of the many sites registered for Veracruz alone, only about 2000 have been catalogued.
It is financially simply not feasible to do much more than that agency is doing. So save your complaints when you see an
Olmec monument as a door stop.
