Abstract

NAVARRO, Alexandre Guida. Toltec invasion in Chichén Itzá's city? A new interpretation of questions from material culture of the "Terras Maias Baixas do Norte". História [online]. 2010, vol.29, n.2, pp. 279-294. ISSN 1980-4369.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-90742010000200016.

This article aims to study one the most controversial questions about Mexican Archaeology: the Toltec invasion on Chichén Itzá's city. The issue divides the opinion. There is a group of searches that believe that Chichén Itzá is a city built by toltecs. On the other hands, others searches thinks that Chichén Itzá is a city purely maya. In this text, we present some archaeological evidences that show the impossibility of the invasion of Tula on Chichén Itzá's urban centre.

Keywords : Mesoamerica; Mayas; Toltecs; Material culture.
