Example text

However, when artifacts, and their manufacturing technologies, are observed through long spans of time, it can be identified that they have various dimensions of change and conservatism, in addition to various perceptions of such dynamics of continuity and change. Ceramics have often been used to explore social change and continuity in the past as they are well represented in the archeological record and can be associated to many different users and uses. However, as Rice (1984:234) explains, ceramics do not reliably and predictably accompany social change.

They claimed that a few countries controlled the representation of culture while the rest of the world was not only underrepresented, but also misrepresented. Such hegemonic ideologies reinforced colonial stereotypes, made polarized distinctions between the ‘we’ and the ‘other’, and considered the first as the model and direction of civilization. An effect of these ideas was Homi Bhabha’s essays compiled in the Location of Culture (1989), in which he analyzed his own experiences as colonized. Another effect was the creation of alternative histories; that is, to write history from the perspective of those not mentioned in the history as commoners, oppressed or marginalized.

The analysis is based in fieldwork research in several pottery towns of the region specialized in the manufacture of lead glaze ceramics. As will be later presented, this kind of object and its technology of manufacture is a continuation of the pre-Hispanic ceramic tradition in the region. This study is mainly focused on the following towns: Amozoc and San Miguel Tenextatiloyan in the state introduction 17 of Puebla; Metepec, Barrio de Santa Cruz Texcoco, Santa María Canchesdá, Santiago Coachochitlan and San Juanico in the state of Mexico, and Huasca in the state of Hidalgo.
