At the back inside the book is a 12-page foldout timeline which could be detached and displayed on a wall or noticeboard. The 32-page book follows precisely the same chronological arrangement, giving supporting info and background. The Aztec culture was virtually destroyed when the Spanish defeated the Aztec king Moctezuma in 1519, altering the course of Mexican history forever. The Aztecs had been a great culture but they did not exist alone: they participated in trade, alliances, exploitation, tribute and warfare with surrounding folks of Mexico. It offers a colourful visual reference to the important periods, events and developments of ancient central Mexico from the earliest hunter-gatherers around 8,000 BC, to the growth of farming, villages and lastly the flourishing of the Aztecs with their great city of Tenochtitlan. The book helps you obtain insights into their technologies (farming, building) ; ideas (beliefs regarding the natural and supernatural worlds, social and political systems) ; signifies of expression (writing, art, calendars and mathematical systems) ; valuable goods and even people (such as craftsmen ). Both book and timeline are richly illustrated throughout with colour photographs, like several objects from the British Museums collections.
