Dumbarton Oaks Pre-Columbian Art and Archaeology Studies Series

Art, Art History, Archaeology, Pre-Columbian Studies

“This is a major contribution to Pre-Columbian studies…a tight theme handled in excellent scholarly detail. The monograph presents much material that is new and certainly looks at it in a new way. The West Mexican-Ecuador/Peru contacts are of high importance in New World culture history. This pins them down beyond all doubt.” Gordon Willey, Professor Emeritus, Harvard University “…a concise and informative study of a culturally significant class of Pre-Columbian artifacts…Not satisfied simply to carry out technical analyses and museum artifacts, the authors go further to combine their archaeometric [sic] data with inferences from archaeology and ethnohistory to investigate the social and economic significance of the bronze artifacts.” Ethnohistory
