Mayan & Aztecs

Primary school resources to support the teaching of Mayan and Aztecs.

In the 16th Century, explorers in the Americas encountered a great civilization.

A territory controlled by the Aztecs and the Maya. The region was inhabited by people whose great achievements included masterpieces of art, spectacular cities and a unique approach to life.

The Mayans are believed to be the first to discover cocoa and learnt that the beans inside the cocoa pods could be made into a liquid that would become a treat for us all!
Many of the artefacts in this box have been imported from Mexico. The collection provides an interesting display as well as an insight into life of this fascinating civilization.
