Summary

Summary

Written by leading scholars, each book in this series provides an up-to-date assessment of a particular area of the ancient world. Abundantly illustrated in full color, the series places readers at the cutting edge of modern archaeological thinking.

Drawing on findings from the recently excavated Templo Mayor of Tenochtitlan, Boone explains how one Aztec group, the Mexica, rose to remarkable prominence in less than two hundred years and why they succumbed so easily to Hernan Cortes in 1521.
