A truly collaborative project, Aztecs will display more than 200 cultural objects selected by Raúl Barrera from the National Institute of Anthropology and History in Mexico and Lynette Townsend at Te Papa Tongarewa. Many of these objects have only recently been excavated. Carlton.

In addition to striking close-up photography, the documentary features interviews and demonstrations with the exhibition’s curator Gareth Williams as well as television historians Michael Wood and Bettany Hughes.
