    One thought on “Great Temple of the Aztecs: Treasures of Tenochtitlan”

    1. Popular treatment of the Great Temple to Huitzilopochtli and Tlaloc in Tenochtitlan, written by one of the excavators. The first and last sections give general information about Aztec history and culture, and the middle chapters describe the different stages of the temple and what the archaeologists found in it and try to interpret their significance in terms of the pre-Hispanic Aztec worldview. Written while the study was still in progress, so I have to assume it's out of date now.
