In the 13th or 14th century, the Aztecs of central Mexico discovered the ruins of a city so impressive that they named it "Teotihaucán," which means where men become gods. It is believed that Teotihaucán, a UNESCO world heritage site, was founded in 400 B.C. and abandoned somewhere in the 8th century A.D. At its peak, it was home to as many as 200,000 inhabitants. Little is known about the Teotihaucán people, and to this day they remain an anthropological mystery. This talk will discuss the history and archaeology of Teotihaucán, including a remarkable discovery in 2003 that is still being excavated.
