The name ‘Tlatilco’ was given to this culture by Nahuatl speakers, who arrived long after it had disappeared. It means ‘the place of hidden things’. only recorded habitat, and they appear to have thrived there even with a substantial human presence.

Perhaps a better musical comparison than Beethoven’s Ninth would be an extended version of the primordial sludge in the opening bars of the prelude to Wagner’s Das Rheingold.

They lived in slow-moving, shallow waters of estuaries or coastal swamps, rich in food and places to hide. In these conditions, ‘fishapods’, able to do pushups on proto-limbs to gulp fresh air from just above its river habitat, would have had an edge over those relying only on gills to extract meagre oxygen from the murky water.
