The Mayans, Incas and AztecsThis is a collection of bookmarks based around the ancient civilisations of the Mayans, Incas and Aztecs.

The Mayans

The Mayans were an Ancient civilisation who lived in the Yucatán around 2600 B.C. Today, this area is southern Mexico, Guatemala, northern Belize and western Honduras.

The Aztecs

The Aztecs were nomads before they settled down in the Valley of Mexico. Other tribes were living in the area moved them away so rather than start a war for a place to live, the Aztecs settled down in the swampy land around Lake Texcoco building a city called city of Tenochtitlán

The Incas

There were over a million Incas in the 15th Century, living in Peru, along the Pacific coast and the Andean highlands from the northern border of what is today called Ecuador to the Maule River in Chile.
