Mysterious and minsuderstood are two good ways to describe this ancient Mesoamerican culture; which has been the subject of so many misconceptions since their discovery. Let's talk about them and more in this new video, on the Tenocelome (a.k.a Olmec)

Long held is the idea that the Americas were sort of trapped in a long Stone Age before the Columbian contact, as if they only developed the technology to work gold just in time to produce wonderful treasures for greedy conquistadores. Well, let's tackle that myth! Enjoy this two part tour!

The evolution of Central America has been grossly misrepresented in most academic outlets, something that is a painful reflection of how little the public in the so-called First World cares about the fate of these nations and their past, prefering to demonize them and simply brand them as unruly and backwards by definition Today I bring you a map that will show you the odyssey that was nation-building in Central America, from the last years of the Spanish rule to 2018. Please enjoy

When people think about Mesoamerica they almost exclusively think of two civilizations, the Aztec and the Maya, and they do it in a rather simplistic way, as if they were both natio-states in an eternal rivalry over Mesoamerica (or if you are a programmer of AOE, over Texas too) But the truth is, that the Maya never a unified state, and the Aztec only dominated Mesoamerica for less than a century, so there's a lot of Mesoamerican history denied and obscured by the simplistic misconceptions I pointed earlier So, in order to help you visualize the complexity of Mesoamerica across it's history, I made this map, which portray the evolution of the región before the rise of the Aztec, from the Olmec city-states to the conquests of Eight Deer Jaguar Claw. Enjoy them! https://www.deviantart.com/aztlanhistorian/gallery/65659173/Real-History-Mesoamerica-before-the-Aztecs

Home to the Muisca, the Zenú, the Huetar and the Quimbaya, this region is filled with wonders, yet it's painfully ignored. There's was much more in the Pre-Columbian Americas than just the Aztec, the Maya or the Inca
