In KS2 history one of the topics explored is the culture of the Aztec Empire found in Mexico prior to the Spanish conquest. This is the first of two quizzes on the subject and it focusses in particular on the Spanish conquest, but also looks at everyday life in the Aztec Empire.
The Aztecs were American Indians who settled by Lake Texcoco in Mexico. Lake Texcoco was swampy and not the best place to settle, but the Aztecs adapted to the land and made it suitable for growing crops. Their capital city flourished and at its height was one of the largest cities in the world - much larger than most cities in Europe at the time. Over many years of expansion, they had built themselves an empire, only to lose it all in the Spanish conquest of Mexico during the 1500s.
