Cultures of the Month: The Aztecs, Olmecs, and Maya
In the name of spreading our love for anthropology and archaeology to the masses, we’re starting a new feature on the blog in addition to the normal blogging about our life and travels. Every month we’re going to highlight a different prehistoric or historic culture with weekly posts about the way those people lived, died, believed, ate, waged war, expressed themselves, and what they left behind for us to find. Our cultures for the month of February are the Aztecs, the Olmecs, and the Maya since they were relatively similar and influenced each other to a certain degree. We are leaving out a few other Mesoamerican cultures for the sake of keeping the blog posts limited or manageable. The weekly posts will probably come on the weekends so keep an eye out for that.
