CO- Maya to Aztec Great Couses class

Maya to Aztec: Ancient Mesoamerica Revealed, Part 2

Great Courses DVD class taught by Professor Edwin Barnhart of the Maya Exploration Center

Facilitated by Virgil Knoche

Thursdays, noon to 1:30 pm

Archeologist Barnhart details the history and culture of Mesoamerican societies, focusing on the Maya and Aztec cultures.                                                                                             The Maya had been in Mesoamerica for thousands of years, and the Aztecs mysteriously appeared late and rose swiftly to                                                                                                 power, controlling the region for less than a century until the arrival of Hernán Cortés in the early 1500’s. Barnhart spotlights                                                                                              the encounter with Cortés and his small army and shows how Mesoamerica was transformed forever.                                                                                                                                    --- Beth Knoche, Programs Coordinator, Friends of Coast Community Library
