About this item

Mexico provided a key battleground in the international struggle to professionalize the emerging academic disciplines of archaeology and anthropology, says Valiant, and serves as an excellent case study for the professionalization of archaeological practices. He shows how the process was extraordinarily contentious and inflected by class, education and race, reinforced by the doctrine and rhetoric of scientific practice in the late 19th century. He covers nation building, designing the Porfiriato, rag of barbarism: Aztecs and Mayas in international thought 1804-1911, the inspector general and conservator of archaeological monuments, Batres in the field, Batres fought with all the world, and the grand tour: International Congress of Americanists in Mexico City 1910.
