This authoritative volume has been revised throughout and expanded, with stunning new images and accounts of the major discoveries of recent years. Recent findings have been added to expand our understanding of the Olmecs outside of their heartland, and new research on the legacy of the Maya offers a wider and more cohesive narrative of Mexico's history. New co-author Javier Urcid has added greater coverage of Oaxaca and of Monte Alban, one of the earliest cities in Mesoamerica and the center of the Zapotec civilization, and a fully revised Epilogue discusses the survival of indigenous populations in Mexico from the Conquest up to the present. This longstanding classic now features full-colour photos of the vibrant art and architecture of ancient Mesoamerica throughout.

The Lords of Lambityeco - Political Evolution in the Valley of Oaxaca during the Xoo Phase (Hardcover, New): Michael Lind,... The Lords of Lambityeco - Political Evolution in the Valley of Oaxaca during the Xoo Phase (Hardcover, New)
Michael Lind, Javier Urcid
R1,421 Discovery Miles 14 210 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The Valley of Oaxaca was unified under the rule of Monte Alb n until its collapse around AD 800. Using findings from John Paddock's long-term excavations at Lambityeco from 1961 to 1976, Michael Lind and Javier Urcid examine the political and social organization of the ancient community during the Xoo Phase (Late Classic period).
Focusing on change within this single archaeological period rather than between time periods, The Lords of Lambityeco traces the changing political relationships between Lambityeco and Monte Alb n that led to the fall of the Zapotec state. Using detailed analysis of elite and common houses, tombs, and associated artifacts, the authors demonstrate increased political control by Monte Alb n over Lambityeco prior to the abandonment of both settlements.
Lambityeco is the most thoroughly researched Classic period site in the valley after Monte Alb n, but only a small number of summary articles have been published about this important locale. This, in combination with Lambityeco's status as a secondary center--one that allows for greater understanding of core and periphery dynamics in the Monte Alb n state--makes The Lords of Lambityeco a welcome and significant contribution to the literature on ancient Mesoamerica.
