Ancestors and Elites : Emergent Complexity and Ritual Practices in the Casas Grandes Polity, Hardback Book

Ancestors and Elites : Emergent Complexity and Ritual Practices in the Casas Grandes Polity Hardback

Part of the Archaeology of Religion series

Description

Ancestors and Elites examines prehispanic ritual behaviors characteristic of the Casas Grandes region of Chihuahua, Mexico.

Gordon Rakita analyzes the archaeological data from the site with respect to broader anthropological theories regarding both religious practices and the rise of complex societies.

This confluence of empirical fact and general theory allows Rakita to explore in detail the complex, reciprocal relationship between ritual practices and developing social complexity at Paquime, one of the best-documented archaeological sites in the region.
