Toltec Civilisation

11. nov. In the search for tula of the toltecs

- foredrag på engelsk om arkæologi i det nordlige Mexico og det sydvestlige USA. Ved arkæolog Nick Caretta, Bornholms Museum.

The Toltec civilization flourished in central Mexico between the 10th and mid-12th centuries CE. Continuing the Mesoamerican heritage left to them by the earlier Olmec, Teotihuacans, Maya and others. Pre-hispanic sources would describe Tollan the capital of the Toltecs as an impressive city where knowledge and crafts were superb. This knowledge and would be passed to later civilizations such as the Aztecs (Mexica), who regarded the Toltecs as a great and prosperous mythical civilization, even claiming descent from this once great civilization as much as Teotihuacan. In this presentation, we will talk about the toltecs and their achievements, where was Tollan or Tula? Who was their mythical hero Quetzalcóatl? and why were they so important for the Mesoamerican tradition?
