Lecture: "Dressing the Part: Ritual Costume in the Mesoamerican World"

Dr. Annabeth Headrick's work focuses on archaeological cultures, but she incorporates traditions and beliefs of living indigenous peoples as a way to understand the past. This talk brings to life objects in the exhibition Exploring Art of the Ancient Americas: The John Bourne Collection by explaining the various costume elements and their meanings. In addition, the lecture illuminates how costume was a critical part of statecraft, war, and worship.
