The series aims to provide a peer-reviewed forum for new interdisciplinary studies – original monographs, article collections, editions of primary sources, translations – on the late pre-Colonial and early Colonial period history of indigenous cultures on the American continent, with a geographical focal point on Middle America. The scope is broad with regard to the involved disciplines and will include historical, archaeological, and epigraphic studies. It is concerned with political, social and religious history as recorded through written and pictographic sources, artistic expression, material culture and ritual.
