Stunning images help this thoroughly researched, well-written volume bring Aztec history and culture vividly to life for readers. Aztec history is traced from its ancestors' migration to the Valley of Mexico to the lives of their descendants in modern Mexico. Topics include the founding of their capital Tenochtitl n, the growth of the Aztec Empire, and the destruction of the empire by Spanish conquistadors and the diseases they brought. The book also explores aspects of Aztec culture such as social classes, games, the arts, warfare, religion, and human sacrifice. Useful features such as a timeline and glossary aid readers' understanding, and additional resources and suggested activities invite deeper exploration of Aztec history and culture.
