If you have an interesting question on any aspect of Aztec or ancient Mexican life, why not share it...?
We get a steady flow of interesting questions to our website - not just from school pupils - many of which we feel are worth answering and sharing with others. Please note! Being a hard-pressed teaching team, we find it hard to keep up with your questions! If your query isn’t answered for a while, FORGIVE US, it hasn’t been forgotten. If we ever retire from ‘the chalk face’, we’ll have far more time for this sort of thing...!
