Summary

The Aztecs were noted for their impressive architecture, majestic sculpture, luxurious clothing, and fine goldworking--but they also practiced human sacrifice. The seemingly contradictory aspects of this fascinating culture are examined here, from its primitive beginnings through its apex as a powerful, glorious empire and its collapse with the period of Spanish rule.
