We all know that Kevin is a grade A History nerd, but what part of history? Does he know all the names of the roman emperors? Can he tell all the mesoamerican pyramids apart and say which culture build them? Did he learn french just so he could read reports of the french revolution in their original form? Is he going to write a thesis on the history of sport and trace exy back to the ancient greek? I just need to know which specific kind of nerd he is!!
Teotihuacan was a pre-Columbian Mesoamerican city located in the sub valley of the Valley of Mexico, known today as the site of many of the most architecturally significant Mesoamerican pyramids built in the pre-Columbian Americas. Apart from the pyramids, Teotihuacan is also anthropologically significant for its complex, multi-family residential compounds; the Avenue of the Dead, and the small portion of its vibrant murals that have been exceptionally well-preserved.
The city is thought to have been established around 100 BCE; it began as a new religious center in the Mexican Highland around the first century CE. [x]
