Excerpt from Mexican and Central American Antiquities, Calendar Systems, and History: Twenty-Four Papers The translations were made, under the direction and at the expense of Mr Bowditch, by Miss Selma Wesselhoeft, with the assistance of Miss A. M. Parker. Supervision of the publication was entrusted to Dr Cyrus Thomas, of the Bureau, whose familiarity with the arche ology and especially with the glyphic writing of middle America has been of much value in the revision of the proofs. Dr Eduard Seler, author of a number of papers herein republished, was engaged in exploration in Central America and Mexico while his memoirs were being put in type, hence it was not possible to submit the proofs to him at the time. Having returned recently to Berlin, however, Doctor Seler, has prepared brief notes and has made necessary corrections and important additions._ These appear at the close of the volume.

Mesoamerican Architecture As A Cultural Symbol

In this collection, prominent scholars provide new interpretations and useful syntheses of many of the most significant Mesoamerican architectural traditions from the Preclassic to the Postclassic periods. The essays examine the built environment as a carrier of cultural meanings. The many pyramid-temples, palaces, and ballcourts comprising Mesoamerican centers were constructed in the context of hierarchical societies, and provided monumental expressions of elite authority. The design of individual buildings, as well as the layout of site plans, often embodied Mesoamerican beliefs about the structure of the cosmos, natural forces, or the numinous power of landscape forms, thus providing sanction for the sociopolitical order.
