Aztec History and Name

Aztec History and Name | Ancient Aztec Culture | Scoop.it
Savannah Carter's insight:

The article, “Aztecs; A New Perspective,” was written by John M. D. Pohl; an archaeologist, who serves as a professor in the Department of Art History at UCLA. Dr. Pohl has directed numerous excavations in Mexico, Central America, Canada, and the United States. The article listed was published through “History Today Magazine.” The article contains information about the history, religious ideology, background on where the name “Aztec” originated, excavations, and military history. This article is a very valuable source, because it gives a wide variety of information on the Aztec culture, while still managing to provide detail. It goes into more depth than the first source.
