World History: Teotihuacan

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.
