Approaches to the Historical Archaeology of Mexico, Central & South America
This volume brings together for the first time a collection of articles by scholars working in the field of historical archaeology in Mexico, Central, and South America. Even though archaeologists have conducted investigations on historical sites in Latin America for many years, international borders have often limited interaction among researchers and the exchange of pertinent literature among interested readers. As a result, there has been little awarenesss or understanding of the breadth of research focused on the archaeology of postcontact Latin America, especially that performed outside the Carribean area. Although it is premature to attempt to synthesize all current research on historical sites in Latin America, this volume is meant to convey a sense of the work under way and the direction in which future research may be headed.
