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.

As portals to the supernatural realm that creates and animates the universe, caves have always been held sacred by the peoples of Mesoamerica. From ancient times to the present, Mesoamericans have made pilgrimages to caves for ceremonies ranging from rituals of passage to petitions for rain and a plentiful harvest. So important were caves to the pre-Hispanic peoples that they are mentioned in Maya hieroglyphic writing and portrayed in the Central Mexican and Oaxacan pictorial codices. Many ancient settlements were located in proximity to caves. This volume gathers papers from twenty prominent Mesoamerican archaeologists, linguists, and ethnographers to present a state-of-the-art survey of ritual cave use in Mesoamerica from Pre-Columbian times to the present. Organized geographically, the book examines cave use in Central Mexico, Oaxaca, and the Maya region. Some reports present detailed site studies, while others offer new theoretical understandings of cave rituals. As a whole, the collection validates cave study as the cutting edge of scientific investigation of indigenous ritual and belief. It confirms that the indigenous religious system of Mesoamerica was and still is much more terrestrially focused that has been generally appreciated.

A case study in the divergent evolution of Mexico's Zapotec and Mixtec civilizations, this collection has become a basic resource in the literature of Mesoamerican prehistory and has been widely cited by scholars working on divergent evolution in other parts of the world. Originally published by Academic Press in 1983, a new introduction by the editors updates the volume in terms of discoveries made during the subsequent two decades.
