Pre Columbian Antiquities for Sale

Pre Columbia also known as Mesoamerica had four major religions, Maya, Mixtec, Zapotec, and Aztec. Their beliefs were very different but all shared the same hunger for sacrifice, murder, rape and violence. Maya civilization dominated southern Mesoamerica in the second half of the first millennium A.D. continuing until the time of the Spanish conquest. In the Valley of Oaxaca the Zapotec culture had been developing since the Pre-Classic period (beginning circa 1500 B.C.), but it reached its height between about 300 A.D. and 700 A.D. By the 10th century Mixtec rulers from the neighboring highlands had fought and married their way into parts of the Zapotec Valley of Oaxaca. The last major Mesoamerican civilization was that of the Aztec, who were also called Mexica. The Aztec capital of Tenochtitlán, the present site of Mexico City, was one of the largest and one of the most beautiful cities in the world at the time of the Spanish conquest.
