There are great mysteries that surround the earliest peoples that settled in the rainforests and coastal areas of Central America. Life in Ancient Mesoamerica explores the Olmec peoples and their massive stone sculptures, the great architecture, language, and art of the Maya, and the military achievement of the Aztec civilization. The book also features the many gods and goddesses of Mesoamerica, the role of religion in the daily life of the people, and what is known about each civilization’s decline.
