The background of the Aztecs has been haunted by means of the spectre of human sacrifice. As bloody clergymen and brutal warriors, the Aztecs have peopled the pages of heritage, fantasy and fiction, their fantastic violence dominating perceptions in their tradition and casting a veil over their specific lifestyle. Reinvesting the Aztecs with a humanity often denied to them, and exploring their spiritual violence as a understandable component to existence and lifestyles, Caroline Dodds Pennock integrates a clean interpretation of gender with an cutting edge learn of the typical lifetime of the Aztecs.

Sample text

Research in historical linguistics has also been used by archaeologists to develop models on the divergence of ethnolinguistic groups (Josserand et al. 1984). Oaxaca’s ethnographic and linguistic record provides a means for understanding indigenous cultural principles and practices. In subsequent chapters, this view of indigenous belief and practice will provide a basis for developing relational analogies (Stahl 1993; Wylie 1985) that in conjunction with archaeological data can be used to make inferences about prehispanic society and culture.

Finally, agency has often been equated with power, as in the ability to effect change in society. Another debate surrounding the use of agency in archaeology is whether agency exists at the level of individuals (Flannery 1999) or groups (Gillespie 2001). I believe that much of the debate over agency in archaeology misses the point at the heart of practice theory – the recursivity of social life and the inseparability (duality) of the subject and society, including both their ideational and material dimensions.

For example, in ancient Oaxaca, rulers used language, dress, and ritual practices to at times foreground a distinct “international” identity that connected them to likeminded nobles throughout Mesoamerica, whereas in other contexts they acted as the “father or mother” of the community, foregrounding affiliations with their subjects. At times the intersection of these local and “international” identities embodied unresolved conflicts and social tensions (Barber 2005; A. Joyce 2006). People therefore embody an intersection of identities that never represent a unified, consistent, fixed, and integrated whole.
