Summary: Ancient Mexic Cultural Traditions in the Land of the Feathered Serpent begins in a time long before history was recorded, and ends with the arrival of the Spaniards in the 16th century. It essentially constructs an important and all encompassing framework for those who wish to learn about Mexico¿s cultural history, its ancient Indian heritage, and its ultimate conquest by the Europeans. Focusing on major archaeological and intellectual accomplishments in center
s of growth through this extremely long period of time enables the reader to better understand the very foundations of Mexican culture.

Ancient Mexico consists of six periods of development from Prehistory through the Conquest of Mexico. From simple village life through the construction of sophisticated cities, the text ends with a description of a leadership that loses its way because of an ancient legend. Gods who were worshiped from earliest times are ultimately pushed into the shadows of the past as the religion of the Spaniards is imposed. The contrast between Indian Mexico and Spanish Mexico is discussed, as is the tragic toll on life and spirit that this merging of cultures brought about.

Ancient Mexico consists of six important time periods:
  • 1.Origins of Settled Life -- offers archaeological evidence of early human habitation in the New World.
  • 2. The Preclassic period -- focuses on village life, the development of agricultural techniques, and the enigmatic Olmec culture.
  • 3. The Classic period -- a time to pay homage to the gods, obey the Priest-Leaders, and construct cities, temples, and pyramids.
  • 4. The Postclassic period -- from priest/Leaders to domination by warriors, and the rise of the Aztec Empire.
  • 5. The Conquest of Mexico -- How the belief in an ancient legend destroyed an Empire.
  • 6. Epilogue -- The 16th century after the Conquest: governance, religion, and humanity under Spanish rule
