Aztecs, Mayas, Incas and the Cultures of Pre-Columbian America, Paperback / softback Book

Aztecs, Mayas, Incas and the Cultures of Pre-Columbian America Paperback / softback

Edited by Antonio Aimi, Antonio Guarnotta

Paperback / softback


This volume, edited by Antonio Aimi and Antonio Guarnotta, offers a new, up-to-date study of the most important cultures of Mesoamerica and of the Peruvian Area, through magnificent artefacts held by the MIC (Museo Internazionale delle Ceramiche in Faenza) and various other Italian museums. The cultures of the Aztecs, Mayas, Incas and other populations of ancient America are analysed in light of the most recent archaeological and ethnohistorical research.

Themes of prime importance are examined in depth: the conquest of America as seen from the point of view of the conquered, the status of women, the systems of calculation of ancient Peru, and pre-Columbian art presented as art, not only as archaeology. Text in English and Italian.
