Abstract

Viaje a la Huasteca es el fruto de más de medio siglo de investigaciones sobre la région. Guy Stresser-Péan llegó a México en 1936 como investigador, aunque en realidad quería ir a África. Llegó convencido por Paul Rivet, uno de los etnólogos más representativos de Francia, y entró en una région que le revelaría todos sus secretos. Stresser-Péan reunió en dos años más de seiscientos objetos etnográficos, doscientas cincuenta muestras botánicas, más de tres mil fotografías de carácter esencialmente etnográfico e importantes datos en lengua huasteca. Una simple mirada al contenido de esta obra muestra la profundidad del estudio: Stresser-Péan no sólo observó y estudió la supervivencia de la danza del volador totonaca, sino que participó en sus celebraciones. Viaje a la Huasteca descubre a fondo una de las civilizaciones milenarias menos conocidas, por no decir olvidadas, de Mesoamérica. Stresser-Péan es “el heredero de una tradición científica en donde se hicieron famosos autores como el barón Von Humboldt, Eduard Seler, Konrad Theodor Preuss, Hermann Beyer, Alfonso Caso y Paul Kirchhoff”. Dominique Michelet lo llamó “un sabio en un mundo que ya casi no tiene más que científicos”. Guy Stresser-Péan siempre me ha impresionado por su sencillez, afabilidad y sabiduría; es uno de los grandes personajes de la antropología mexicana. Cuantos lo conocemos y apreciamos sabemos que es un genuino humanista que aborda sus temas de investigación desde múltiples perspectivas. Sólo cuando considera haber agotado los recursos a su alcance para ahondar en el asunto de que se ocupa, decide dar a conocer los resultados de su trabajo. Esto explica que durante tanto tiempo haya optado por mantenerlos inéditos. Guy Stresser-Péan (1913) se graduó en antropología, ciencias políticas y geología en La Sorbona. Durante 17 años fue director de la Misión Arqueológica y Etnológica Francesa en Mexico (lo que sería después el Centro de Estudios Mexicanos y Centroamericanos, CEMCA). Comenzó las excavaciones en el sitio de Tamtok en 1961, y en 2005 obtuvo el premio otorgado por la Academia Nacional de Estudios Antropológicos. De su obra publicada destacan San Antonio Nogalar, la sierra de Tamaulipas y la frontera norte de Mesoamérica (1977), premiado por la Académie des Inscripcions et Belles Lettres, El arado criollo en Mexico y América Central(1988), El códice de Xicotepec: estudio e interpretación, coeditado por el FCE en 1995, Los lienzos de Acaxochitlán (1998) y, en dos volúmenes, en coautoría con Claude Stresser-Péan, Tamtok, sitio arqueológico huasteco, su historia, sus edificios (2001 y 2005), y Le Soleil-Dieu et le Christ. La christianisation des Indiens du Mexique, vue de la Sierra de Puebla (2005).

Abstract

The Spanish colonization dramatically interrupted the autonomous development of ancient Mesoamerican culture. Nevertheless, indigenous societies learnt to live with the conquest. It was not only a time of crisis, but also an extraordinarily creative time period in which material culture reflected indigenous peoples’ varied responses and adaptations to the changing circumstances. This work presents insights into the process of cultural continuity and change in the indigenous world by focusing on pottery technology in the Nahua (Aztec) region of Central Mexico. The late pre-colonial, early colonial and present-day characteristics of this industry are explored in order to come to a renewed understanding of its long-term development.

Abstract

New data from a variety of well-known scholars in Mesoamerican archaeology reveal the creation, perpetuation, and contestation of politically authoritative relationships between rulers and subjects and between nobles and commoners. The contributions span the geographic breadth and temporal extent of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica—from Preclassic Oaxaca to the Classic Petén region of Guatemala to the Postclassic Michoacán—and the contributors weave together archaeological, epigraphic, and ethnohistoric data. Grappling with the questions of how those exercising authority convince others to follow and why individuals often choose to recognize and comply with authority, Political Strategies in Pre-Columbian Mesoamerica discusses why the study of political authority is both timely and significant, reviews how scholars have historically understood the operation of political authority, and proposes a new analytical framework to understand how rulers rule.

Abstract

This book collects 15 papers written by renowned scholars from across the globe that showcase the forefront research in Earth observation (EO), remote sensing (RS), and geoscientific ground investigations to study archaeological records and cultural heritage.Archaeologists, anthropologists, geographers, remote sensing, and archaeometry experts share their methodologies relying on a wealth of techniques and data including, but not limited to: very high resolution satellite images from optical and radar space-borne sensors, air-borne surveys, geographic information systems (GIS), archaeological fieldwork, and historical maps.A couple of the contributions highlight the value of noninvasive and nondestructive laboratory analyses (e.g., neutron diffraction) to reconstruct ancient manufacturing technologies, and of geological ground investigations to corroborate hypotheses of historical events that shaped cultural landscapes.Case studies encompass famous UNESCO World Heritage Sites (e.g., the Nasca Lines in Peru), remote and yet-to-discover archaeological areas in tropical forests in central America, European countries, south Asian changing landscapes, and environments which are arid nowadays but were probably full of woody vegetation in the past.Finally, the reader can learn about the state-of-the-art of education initiatives to train site managers in the use of space technologies in support of their activities, and can understand the legal aspects involved in the application of EO and RS to address current challenges of African heritage preservation.
