A revised version of the acclaimed "Ancient America", "Ancient Maya and Aztec Civilizations, Third Edition" covers two of the major cultures that thrived in pre-Columbian Central America. Part One focuses on the Maya civilization, which spanned from present-day southern Mexico to Honduras. The importance of time and astrology, as well as the political and social systems of the Mayans, are discussed in thorough detail. Part Two explores the ancient peoples of the Aztec civilization, which flourished in what is today central and southern Mexico. The political system of this empire is outlined, with special emphasis on its great army and powerful rulers. The Aztec's prosperous cities and robust economy are also illuminated. This valuable, fact-filled introduction to the world of the ancient Maya and Aztecs offers young readers a wealth of accessible features, such as full-color maps, charts, documents, and archaeological artifacts and works of art, that will enhance their knowledge of these influential civilizations.
