Lienzo of Tulancingo, Oaxaca: An Introductory Study of a Ninth Painted Sheet from the Coixtlahuaca Valley
Ross Parmenter (au). History, especially ancient history, gains reality when it can be related to modern geography. The interplay appears in instances cited throughout this study--specifically of Mexican geographical identifications that help recover segments of the countryís pre-Columbia past. This studyís principal aim is to show how a particular identification augments the history that can be extracted from a related group of Mexican pictorial manuscripts, whose historical value, though well recognized, has as yet been little explored. These are the lienzos--genealogical, historical & geographical documents painted on cloth--of the Coixtlahuaca Valley in the northern region of the state of Oaxaca known as the Mixteca Alta. Illus.
