GRECCO PACHECO, Daniel  y  SELLEN, Adam T.. The history of itinerant artifacts from the platform of the Eagles and Jaguars, Chichen Itza, Mexico. Estud. cult. maya [online]. 2019, vol.53, pp.11-44. ISSN 0185-2574.

This article intends to present the history of the circulation of a set of objects recovered in the nineteenth century by the explorers Augustus Le Plongeon and Alice Dixon Le Plongeon in an offering from the Platform of Eagles and Jaguars, Chichén Itzá, Mexico. We will analyze the trajectories and itineraries of these objects and seek to understand the materialization of their subjectivity, memories and social elements, as well as perceive uses and reuses made throughout time and in different contexts. To do this, we will use the concept of object itineraries that aims to capture the complexity of the artifacts by tracing their own dynamics. For the development of such an argument, we adopt an archival archeology as a methodology to retrieve the information about the stories of the objects. We believe that by using such an approach it is possible to recover stories, memories and social issues that have been materialized in ancient objects and thus contribute to an understanding and interpretation of the past.
