When Spanish ships landed in Mexico in 1519 the tremendous Aztec empire was at the top of its power from their capital Tenochtitlan the Aztecs controlled much of America ruling 15 million people. Aztec Palaces were as big and elaborate as those in Europe and their temples rivaled the Egyptian pyramids but within just 2 years the Aztec empire perished. The center of the Aztec Empire was the Valley of Mexico, where the capital of the Aztec Triple Alliance was built upon raised islets in Lake Texcoco. The exact origins of the Aztec people are uncertain, but they are believed to have begun as a northern tribe of hunter-gatherers whose name came from that of their homeland, Aztlan.
The Aztecs began as a northern tribe whose name came from a valley known as Aztlan, which was the name of their homeland. They appeared in Mesoamerica, today known as the south central region of Mexico, in the 13th century. There, the Aztecs built their proud city, Tenochtitlan. It was the heart of the Aztec civilization. The Aztec emperor didn’t rule every city state.
The Aztecs engaged in various items that were very unique and different from the rest of society. The Aztecs had an incredibly complex social structure system. They also believed strongly in education, family and the arts. Documents G, I and H focus directly on the horrifying human sacrifice rituals of the Aztecs.
Inca, now a part of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru was one of the most famous civilizations. The Incas started in the Andes mountain in the 1200AD. The Incas used to be hunters from Asia. The people took thousands of years for them to form a community. The Incas developed roads, expanded their land, and their uniformity with other empires helped their empire rise.
The Mayan, Incan and Aztec are generally considered influential societies, but there is still sound debate on whether or not they should be considered civilizations. Seeing as these Early Americans had much of the same qualities as modern civilization and in fact laid the groundwork upon which we have built our own great civilization, it's fair to say they were worthy of the title civilization. However, not only where these people befitting of the honorific of civilization, their great accomplishments actually validate them to the point of being considered advanced. Religion, architecture, and intellectual achievements, are all tell-tale signs of an advanced civilization, and the Incan, Mayan, and Aztecs were comprised of these and much more.

The Aztecs were a remarkable civilization found in present day Mexico City, from 1350 to 1519. Their city of Technochtitlan was the capital city of their civilization.
