If you are curious about how the intriguing Toltec civilization started, how the people lived, and how their culture influenced later generations, then pay attention!

Precursors to the Aztecs (amazing in their own right), the Toltec people were the pre-Columbian Mesoamerican civilization honored for their artisanship and tactile warfare - considered so fierce and respectable that the Aztecs claimed descendancy from them! How did this empire come to be regarded as the apex of culture, sophistication, and civilization? Why did the Aztecs overtake them, and how? And…which came first: the Mayans, the Toltecs, or the Aztecs?

Explore these questions and more as you step into amazing architectural sites in Indiana Jones-eque style! Learn the mysteries behind their gods and religious ceremonies - including human sacrifice - and their special connection to Chichen Itza.

Here are some of the fascinating questions you will explore:

  • What secrets have recent archaeological finds uncovered about the Toltecs and other Mesoamerican cultures?
  • How did the Mayan culture influence the Toltecs?
  • How did the Toltecs dominate present-day Mexico from Tula?
  • What made them the greatest warriors of their day?
  • What important statues and relics have been found by recent archeological digs? What have we learned from these spectacular finds?
  • Did they really practice human sacrifice? How? Why?
  • Toltec paper - from the bark of what tree?
  • What is an “ajaw” or “kalompte”, and did the Toltecs bow to him?
  • How did the Toltecs move from a barter system to a more capitalistic trade approach?
  • Was there cohesion between the different factions of the Toltec society?

And, much, much more!
