He is best known for his role in gaining passage of the Antiquities Act, a pioneering piece of legislation for the conservation movement; as the founder and first director of the Museum of New Mexico; and as the first president of the New Mexico Normal School, now New Mexico Highlands University. Hewett's dealings with Maria Martinez, the great potter of San Ildefonso Pueblo, were instrumental in establishing San Ildefonso as a center for Native American pottery. He helped stimulate the rebirth of pottery as a significant folk art form in the region." (from Wikipedia). Very Good+ .

HEWETT, EDGAR L. AND WAYNE L. MAUZY
Landmarks of New Mexico (Handbooks of Archaeological History Series)
New Mexico: University of New Mexico Press / School of American Research, 1947. 2nd Edition. Hardcover. B&W Illustrations; This book is in Very Good+ condition and is lacking a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in mostly clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. There is a previous owner's bookplate (LeRoy V. Brandt) on the front pastedown page. "Hewett's interest in Frijoles Canyon was timely, for ethnologist Adolph Bandelier had just started to describe, through both scientific papers and his novel The Delight Makers (1890) , prehistoric life on the Pajarito Plateau. Hewett came to know Bandelier and consider him his mentor in his own studies. By 1896 Hewett himself was conducting field work on the Plateau, although he continued to defer to Bandelier's expertise on the region for many years. Hewett rapidly came to believe that the Plateau's archaeological sites constituted a national resource that should be preserved, and in the 1890s he advocated creation of a "Pajarito National Park" that would protect essentially the entire Plateau."

"Classical archaeology in its strictest, most traditional sense applies only to the study of Classical Athenian culture and the culture of the Roman Republic and Empire. However, over the course of the last century, the field has expanded to include discussions of the elaborate mosaic of cultures that produced the civilizations of Ancient Greece and Rome. Classical archaeologists interested in Greece frequently discuss Crete and the Minoan civilization present on that island during the Bronze Age. ". Very Good+ .

The book and its contents are in mostly clean, bright condition. The spine ends and corners of the book covers have some light bumping and rubbing. The text pages are clean and bright. Illustrated throughout with black and white plates. "Harold John Edward Peake or Harold Peake F. S. A (1867–1946) was a British archaeologist and curator for the West Berkshire Museum. With Herbert John Fleure he wrote ten books in the Corridors of Time series covering aspects of archaeology and anthropology as well as several works on his own "Prospector Theory" and other archaeological themes. Peake is most remembered for his "Prospector Theory" of the diffusionism school within anthropology which argues that a group of sea-voyagers from the Eastern Mediterranean sea colonised Europe from c. 2800 BC, introducing the Dolmen. Unlike Grafton Elliot Smith, who believed these maritime colonists were Egyptian, Peake argued that they were descendants of the Sumerians. Peake named this group of sea-voyagers the "Prospectors" based on the fact they were believed to be merchants or traders seeking for ores and metals.". Very Good+ .

Peake named this group of sea-voyagers the "Prospectors" based on the fact they were believed to be merchants or traders seeking for ores and metals. This identification was strengthened in Peake's opinion by the fact Bronze Age deposits of metal in Britain were always close by dolmens, an argument also put forward by William James Perry. Peake further maintained that the "Prospectors" were brachycephalic (broad-headed) and racially an intermediate Alpine-Mediterranean people.". Very Good+ .

"Heinrich Schliemann (6 January 1822 – 26 December 1890) was a German businessman and a pioneer in the field of archaeology. He was an advocate of the historicity of places mentioned in the works of Homer and an archaeological excavator of Hissarlik, now presumed to be the site of Troy, along with the Mycenaean sites Mycenae and Tiryns. His work lent weight to the idea that Homer's Iliad and Virgil's Aeneid reflect historical events. Schliemann's excavation of nine levels of archaeological remains with dynamite has been criticized as destructive of significant historical artifacts, including the level that is believed to be the historical Troy.".

 ROYS, RALPH L., The Titles of Ebtun Carnegie Institution of Washington Publ. No. 505
ROYS, RALPH L.
The Titles of Ebtun Carnegie Institution of Washington Publ. No. 505
Washington, D. C.: Carnegie Institution of Washington, 1939. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Paperback. B&W Illustrations; This is an oversized paperback book with heavy cardstock covers. The book is in Near Fine condition and was likely issued without a dust jacket. The covers have noticeable generalized toning. The text pages are clean and bright. "In the archives of Ebtun, an Indian village near Valladolid in eastern Yucatan, there is a large collection of papers which, together with related documents from other sources, cover practically the entire colonial period and the first decade of the independence of Yucatan. These documents, about half of which are written in the Maya language, not only pertain to the history of the town, but alos contain much information regarding the region to the west and south. The latter extends beyond Chichen Itza and includes nearly the western half of the ancient sacbe, or causeway, connecting the ruins of Yxuna with those of Coba." (from the introduction of the book). " one text is clarified by a parallel passage. In the thirties Ralph made several trips to Yucatan to improve his Maya and to gather material subsequently incorporated in the The Titles of Ebtun (1939) and, a long-time project, The Political Geography of the Yucatan Maya (1957). He traveled the interior of Yucatan, sometimes alone, sometimes in the company of Lawrence or a colleague, seeking to identify locations of sites mentioned in early documents, particularly with the object of redrawing as reliably as possible the boundaries of the old "Provinces" of Yucatan. This was a long and arduous task which took him by mule and on foot to many remote spots. Ralph was a keen observer and a thorough investigator; he was, indeed, a curious person in the old sense of that word as applied to Samuel Pepys by Evelyn. " (RALPH LOVELAND ROYS, 1879-1965. ByJ. ERIC S. THOMPSON). Near Fine .

The dust jacket has several edge tears, nicks and a couple of small chips missing. "Toward the end of the first season at Lubaantun, the site of Pusilha was discovered and Thompson was sent to investigate with his guide, Faustino Bol. Thompson's subsequent interactions with his guide, who was a Mopan Maya, would later shed light on how Thompson viewed the ancient Maya and their culture. As a result of their long conversations, Thompson concluded that is "was clear that archaeological excavations were not the only means of learning about the ancient ways." This led to his first monograph, Ethnology of the Mayas of Southern and Central British Honduras (1930) which gave insight into the problems of Maya archaeological and epigraphic through the use of ethnographic and ethno-historic data. In 1931, Thompson and Gann teamed up to publish The History of the Maya from the Earliest Times to the Present Day. Additionally, Thompson started on a new field project at the site of San Jose in Belize. Here his research was focused at an "average" Maya center in which the stratigraphy produced a ceramic sequence from the Preclassic Period to the Terminal Classic Period." (from Wikipedia).

Though most famous for Christian burials, either in separate catacombs or mixed together, people of all the Roman religions are buried in them, beginning in the 2nd century AD, mainly as a response to overcrowding and shortage of land. The Etruscans, like many other European peoples, used to bury their dead in underground chambers. The original Roman custom was cremation, after which the burnt remains were kept in a pot, ash-chest or urn, often in a columbarium. ". Very Good+ .

The abundance of material and the skill of the artisans, especially of the ancient Andean cultures, contribute to this. The popularity of the exhibit of Dominique D.
