MetadataShow full item record
This chapter of the book to be translated focuses on The Classic Period of the development of Mesoamerica. In most books, The Classic Period lasted from AD 250-900. This period was the most remarkable during the development of Mesoamerica. During this period, the Mayan population increased in millions; they developed kingdoms, empires and palaces. Ruins are everywhere in central and southeastern Mexico. The Mayans also engaged in ceremonies and they worshiped many deities. Apart from that, the source text also introduces the construction and the urban civilization of the great Aztec city, Teotihuacan. The city met its end around AD 700 through destruction and burning by unknown invaders while the luxurious palaces of Teotihuacan were in ruins and its temples abandoned (Coe, 1994, p.p. 106).
