Zapotec Monuments and Political HistoryJoyce Marcus 2020
To mark the completion of their digitization, UMMAA titles are temporarily free-to-read until the end of September 2021.
Of the four major hieroglyphic writing systems of ancient Mesoamerica, the Zapotec is widely considered one of the oldest and least studied. This volume assesses the origins and spread of Zapotec writing; the use and role of Zapotec writing in the politics of the region; and the decline of hieroglyphic writing in the Valley of Oaxaca. Lavishly illustrated with maps, photographs, and original artwork.
