Potrero de Guadalupe

Anthropologie funéraire d'une communauté pré-tarasque du nord du Michoacán, Mexique

Grégory Pereira
Paris Monographs in American Archaeology


This book examines funerary practices in the State of Michoacan (Mexico) in the period of 1200 to 1520 AD. It adds new data to the results recently published by the French Michoacan Project, as funerary and mortuary practices in this region were ill known, due to a relative lack of archaeological investigations. Through the use of the new techniques of funerary anthropology, Pereira has been able to obtain new results, thus modifying in many respects our knowledge of this part of northern Mesoamerica.
