    One thought on “Gods of Sun and Sacrifice: Aztec and Maya Myth”

    1. Very good basic book on the cultural and religios aspects of Mesoamerican culture. I want to read more now!

    2. Gods of Sun & Sacrifice: Aztec and Maya Myth by Tony Allan (Time-Life Myth and Mankind series) is an interesting book. At least superficially it covers myths that are known from the Olmec to present times.

    3. Fascinating book about Mesoamerican Gods. So so strange and their art was astounding. I am curious how much in this book is outdated with new research. 2012 is right around the corner and I certainly am not ready to face Tezcatlipoca.
