In KS2 history children will look at the culture of the Aztec Empire found in Mexico prior to the Spanish conquest. This is the second of two quizzes on the subject and it looks specifically at Aztec religion and culture.
The Aztec Empire emerged around the 13th century and it was dominant in Mexico before the Spanish conquest of the 16th century. Aztec culture had a rich mythology connected to its religion which demanded human sacrifice. This may sound barbaric but the Aztecs were quite civilised. They had a complex calendar, well developed religious traditions and amazing buildings and pyramids. They also traded in some foods which have become popular, not just in Mexico, but throughout the world, such as maize and, perhaps more importantly, chocolate!
Take our second Aztec quiz and find out how much you know about the religion and culture of the Aztec Empire.
