Ancient Kingdoms: A History of the Aztecs, Incas and Mayas
This course treats the history of the three most powerful Native American states: the Aztecs, Incas and Mayas. It begins long before contact with Europeans and ends about two generations after the arrival of the newcomers. Students will learn what scholars have been able to uncover, now that we are relying more on sources written by Indigenous people and less on those produced by Europeans.
