The Aztecs... The Americans of this era don't get much attention. The two groups they focus on are the Aztecs and the Incas.  These are the two largest empires who clashed with the Spanish upon their arrival.  When it comes to the Aztecs, they're difficult to grasp.  They aren't a super old society before the Spanish arrive.  Most people focus on the human sacrifice... which was, at the very least excessive.  But, there is more to these Meso-Americans than ripping out your heart.  Let's talk AZTECS!
