Historic black-and-white photographs and striking color images of archaeological and ethnographic objects enhance this introduction to one of the world's most significant Central and South American anthropological collection. Encounters with the Americas also places the museum in a living context through first-person accounts of sixteenth-century contact between Europeans and Aztec and Maya peoples and post-Columbian encounters of Native peoples with explores and anthropologists.
