Artists And Craftsmen In Ancient Central America (George C. Vaillant) pdf, epub, doc

George Clapp Vaillant was an American anthropologist.

He attended Harvard University where he received his Bachelor's Degree in 1922 and Ph.D. in 1927. His Ph.D. thesis established a chronology of Mayan ceramics. Later on, his work launched the historical sequence of cultures in pre-Columbian Mexico.

At the American Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., Vaillant was appointed the position of associate curator from 1930 to 1941. He became the honorary curator of Mexican Archaeology from 1941 to 1945; during this time, he also taught at several local universities.

He was the Senior Cultural Relations Officer for the United States Embassy in Lima, Peru from 1943 to 1944.

Vaillant conducted archaeological expeditions in the Southwest from 1921 to 1922 and 1922 to 1925, in Egypt from 1923 to 1924, and in Central America in 1926 and 1928 to 1936. He also organised archaeological programs throughout Latin America.

Aztecs of Mexico: Origins, Rise and Fall of the Aztec Nation was completed in 1941, and a second edition was published posthumously. His other book, Indian Arts in North America, was written in 1939. Vaillant also wrote several monographs on Middle American excavations. His major publications, although not lacking in theoretical import, are noteworthy primarily for the extensive and original field research they reflect.

Later in his career Vaillant excavated at several Aztec sites (Chiconautla and Nonoalco), but failed to publish these projects. Several decades later Christina Elson and other scholars at the American Museum of Natural History completed the study of artifacts from these sites and began a program to publish them.

Vaillant killed himself in Devon, Pennsylvania in 1945, at the age of 44.
