Description
A unique look at the Aztecs and the archaeologists who are determined to unearth their secrets. In 1521 the world of the Aztecs came to a sudden end when Hernan Cortes, the Spanish conquistador, destroyed their capital. The ruins of that city lie beneath the streets of modern-day Mexico City. Peter Lourie traveled to Mexico City to meet the renowned archaeologist Leonardo Lopez Lujan. With Dr. Lujan as his guide, the author viewed the diggings at the Aztec Great Temple, and even met the God of Death in the basement of the temple's museum.
