Between 1373 and 1521, the Mexica people buried hundreds of offerings to their gods in the depths of the Templo Mayor of Tenochtitlan, where they remained undiscovered until the Templo Mayor Project of 1978 to 1989, when L=pez Lujßn and 23 other architects discovered, studied, and registered over 100 offerings. In this volume, the first in the Mesoamerican Worlds series, L=pez Lujßn deciphers the offerings' religious significance and explains the associations between the unearthed materials and ritual behavior. Translated from the Spanish. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
