The Templo Mayor precinct at Tenochtitlan in Mexico was an important centre in Aztec ceremonial life, providing the setting for displays of highly-energized rituals. This book uses the latest archaeological research and cutting-edge computer-generated three-dimensional colour imagery to reconstruct the spaces where these ritual dramas were played out. Through a series of isometric drawings and sections cut through buildings, the author has created a compelling reconstruction of how the temple looked, and how it evolved from a scatter of mud and thatch huts to become one of the most impressive urban complexes in the world.
