The Aztecs, who conquered most of Mexico, built a highly developed civilization in the 1400's. At the same time, the Incas were building an empire in Peru.The Mayans were clearly very skilled architects that could create wonders with their resources. Document 1 pictures a Mayan pyramid temple in Tikal, which was the tallest structure in the Americas until the twentieth century.

In Tenochtitlan there was a certain area in which 60,000 people bought and sold their goods daily. All kinds of merchandise could be found and bought in the market places.The Incas were great farmers that used their architectural skill to get all of their crops correctly irrigated.

Document 6 provides a picture of Machu Picchu, which evidences that the Incas were great farmers.Every Mesoamerican civilization had great success in their time, which led the way to modern success.
