”Mexicolore has probably reached more people on the planet than all of the courses on Mexico taught at universities added together. It has been a wonderful success that has brought the magic of Mesoamerica to untold numbers of people...” (Dr. Alan R. Sandstrom, Professor Emeritus of Anthropology, Indiana University Fort Wayne, USA)
“Mexicolore is the only organisation in the United Kingdom that for the last 30 years has been devoted to promoting Mexico’s Aztec heritage, presenting it in a unique and extraordinary way.” (Minister Ignacio Durán, ex-Cultural Attaché, Mexican Embassy, UK)
“Los felicito por la excelente labor educativa que hacen en escuelas, museos y el internet. ¡Su página es, simplemente, la mejor que yo conozca!” (Dr. Leonardo López Luján, Director, Proyecto Templo Mayor, Mexico City)
In support of our school Living History workshops on Mexico, the Aztecs and the Maya, in which some 210,000 children have already participated, this constantly updated, 100% educational website, based in London and established in 2001, offers a wealth of carefully researched information and resources on (ancient) Mexico, all designed to inspire, inform, intrigue and encourage serious students of the Aztecs, the Maya (and ancient Mesoamerica in general) of ALL ages. Note: we receive no funding of any kind, you won’t find us on Facebook, and we carry no adverts. We’re fiercely proud of our independence!
