Abstract

The relationship between conceptions of history and forms of political organization has been almost completely neglected in the study of ancient Greek Culture so far. This book shows that an important element of social self-affirmation lays in this very relationship, facilitating a proper assessment of the importance of Greek historiography, and thus casting an entirely new light on a key phenomenon of ancient culture.

Abstract

The publication presents a detailed architectural documentation and reconstruction of the impressive 1,275-years-old, three-story temple-palace of Santa Rosa Xtampak in Campeche, Mexico. The analysis of the 17 m high 50-room structure with two inner staircases revealed unusual construction principles and serious static problems preventing a planned high roof comb. The publication provides several architectural indications for different functions of the structure, which might also be used to study functions at other Maya buildings.Publication see: http://e-book.fwf.ac.at/o:1106
