The findings in and around an early colonial church in the central town square of Campeche, Mexico, have been a focus of research for many Mexican and foreign scholars. Ten years after the initial discovery and excavation in 2000, various interdisciplinary studies grant fascinating new insights into the social conditions and phenomena that shaped the town of San Francisco de Campeche during the early colonial period. In this context, this book seeks to contribute a new perspective on Hispanic colonial society and its different social and ethnic sectors through the lens of an early multiethnic churchyard in the town of Campeche, Yucatan, Mexico. This chapter presents the historical background and summarizes the processes of the study that involve exhaustive historical and anthropological investigations. The organization of the book and the theme of each chapter are also highlighted.
