Unearthing Early Colonial Campeche
This chapter provides a narrative account of colonial Campeche. By the end of colonial times Campeche had undeniably become a multiethnic city in which residents of various origins, occupations, and social standings interacted within and around the city walls on a daily basis. In this sense, the seventeenth-century plaza with its compact church and multiethnic burial ground, recently unearthed for the first time in four hundred years, symbolizes the confined space and intense social involvement that would determine Campeche's unique and fascinating development throughout the colonial centuries. The work done by scholars in the plaza offers a challenge to archaeologists, historians, and scholars of other disciplines. The aim of this book has been to incorporate the findings into a comprehensive, full-length study of the city that Ogilby called “a great Town.”
