1. 1. Pyramid of the Plumed Serpents (structure XII) Page 3 Chapter 1 Ancient Urbanism at Xochicalco The ancient site of Xochicalco (zo-che-cal-co *) has inspired the imagination and fascinated travelers and scholars visiting the site for more than two centuries. Its well-preserved bas-relief carvings and defensive location on a hilltop 16 km southwest of the city of Cuernavaca, Morelos (figs. 2), attracted the attention of scholars as early as the eighteenth century (Alzate y Ramírez 1791). 1).

The result, I believe, is a better understanding of Central Mexican culture process than if discussion were restricted to Xochicalco alone. Volume 1 incorporates both inductive and deductive reasoning. Because of the limitations of the data, this study often resorts to model building rather than rigorous hypothesis testing. I believe the direct historical approach is useful in arriving at culturally relevant explanations of social phenomena, and I use ethnohistoric models to interpret Epiclassic data.
