The present edition is part of the daily work of museum researchers who, as a result of the search for information on pieces from the holdings of the INAH, in this case, the tombstones and shields of the National Museum of History, gave birth to this publication: a window to a past not so remote when the monuments had another meaning for the population, then located in various places, they now surrounded by buildings that have changed over the years. Thus, the sources were attached tombstones in the arcade of the aqueducts that supplied this city. Regarding the sculpture known as El Caballito, the monuments to Cristóbal Colón and Cuauhtémoc or those of the funeral type related to the battles of Molino del Rey or Chapultepec, as well as the Casa de la Moneda and the Hospital de San Hipólito,all of them have commemorative plaques that indicate who made them, financed them or the date of their construction. The shields of religious orders and conquerors are also a reference of their time. Their importance has led them to be preserved and today they are protected by the National History Museum

When does a continuum become a divide? This book investigates the genetic relationship between Linear A and Linear B, two Bronze Age scripts attested on Crete and Mainland Greece and understood to have developed one out of the other. By using an interdisciplinary methodology, this research integrates linguistic, epigraphic, palaeographic and archaeological evidence, and places the writing practice in its sociohistorical setting. By challenging traditional views, this work calls into question widespread assumptions and interpretative schemes on the relationship between these two scripts, and opens up new perspectives on the ideology associated with the retention, adaptation and transmission of a script, and how identity was negotiated at a moment of closer societal interaction between Cretans and Greek-speaking Mainlanders in the Late Bronze Age. By delving deeper into the structure and inner workings of these two writing systems, this book will make us rethink the relationship between Linear A and B. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
