    Re: Is a great Aztec treasure still waiting to be discovered?

    I grew up down here in old Mexico, and still live here almost 50 years later. We were taught in grade school here that the Aztecs came from the area of Northern U.S., which is now Wisconsin. 8) Also, when the Aztecs arrived here, the lake was NOT dry. In fact, many a Spanish soldier drowned, trying to flee Tenochtitlan with their stolen gold. The Aztecs had four major roadways leading to their island citadel. Most of the lake is dry today, except for Lake Texcoco, which you can easily see when you fly into the city. If you really want to get some exciting reading on Mexico, try "The True History of the Conquest of New Spain", by Bernal Diaz del Castillo. (I see it listed on Amazon.) Diaz del Castillo travelled with Cortez during the conquest of Tenochtitlan.

    You can also see a FREE online 140-year-old book, "The History of the Conquest of Mexico", by William Hickling Prescott here:
    http://www.ajlas.org/v2006/paper/2003vol16no108.pdf

    *I have updated the download link, as the previous one no longer worked.

    The book is also available now on the awesome www.archive.org website in audio format for FREE!

    The Atec treasure in the United States is dwarfed by billions
    in Ecuador. Who would be crazy enough to go for it?

    The border regions that we know today as in State Lines or the border of Mexico and the U.S., ofcourse did not exist in the days of the Aztecs or any other native Indian Tribe. Their border lines were of the Tribes themselves and the land they controlled which fluctuated all the time. The Spanish upon their Explorations of the American Southwest (and Northwest), tried to evaluate their (local tribes) into the lands of where the certain Indian Tribes were, as in the lands of the Cocopauhs, Mohave, Pima, Papago, Zuni and such down the line. The Ute's which are a large group divided into smaller bands or Tribes, depending on which area they are found in , are of many names, Paiute, Shoshone Paiute, Tubatulabal, Kawaiisu, Bannock, Koso, Chemehuevi, Cahuilla, Cupena to name a few.........There are classes within all of these groups of people, because they speak only 2 different types of tongue. 1st is the Hokan Speakers, which are related to the Mohave, ipai, Washo, Quechan a broad range across the U.S. West and into Mexico. 2nd is the Shoshnean Speakers which is the Ute, Paiute Stock, Commanche and ****AZTEC......This language is known as the "UTO-AZTECAN"...........Then ofcourse you have the "Dene" and "Na-Dene" Tribes......I often am amazed at the amount of data concerning "only" Arizona, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico by Southwest Writers and Story-Tellers, History Buffs and so on, when CALIFORNIA (yeah, my home state, 3rd generation, Mother's side), when California and NEVADA are "LOADED" with "DOCUMENTED ARCHAEOLOGICAL REPORTS, ESSAYS, ARTICLES, and LOCATIONS of the "AZTECS" being in this Neighborhood as well...These Locations and Information can be found within the "NATIONAL REGISTERY VOLUMES" of the "NATIONAL PARK SERVICE"....Darrell

    How About An Even Bigger Mayan Treasure

    Since someone mentioned Inca here... great site. There is a lot to be discovered in South America yet. It will take serious money to search, but I have no doubt that great finds can be made.

    http://www.rickrichards.com/Ancient_Civilizations.htm

    "Cryptic writing on a stone doorsill that was found in the ruins of the 16th century cathedral Tihosuco in Yucatan. It is believed to antedate the Mayans. The upper portion of the text appears to have been removed/ destroyed. Who wrote this text? and when?

    Can you recognize the text style? Is it Phoenician? Latin? Celtic? Atlantian? It is NOT Mayan.
    "

    A city of gold that has drawn many explorers, none of whom have returned alive. Here's your chance to make history.

    Re: Is a great Aztec treasure still waiting to be discovered?

    I just finished reading "Conquest, Montezuma, Cortes, and the Fall of Old Mexico" by Hugh Thomas (1993). I found it on Ebay for les than $10, and I think its the best book on the subject, since it relies not only on Diaz and Prescott, but on Cortes' letters and the results of Cortes' trials (residencia) in Spain decades after the conquest. Over 800 pgs. including all references.
    During the torture of Cuauhtemoc, they set his feet on fire with oil. I don't think he knew the location of the treasure but Cortes had a room with much gold in his Mexican "palace" in Tlalalco.

    It's great reading.

    xe1ufo,

    I have all of the books mentioned, including the three volumes of Prescott's "Conquest of Mexico", along with "The Letters of Cortes to Charles" and many others. If you have not read it, I would recommend "The Broken Spears", Edited by Miguel Leon-Portilla. It gives an account of the conquest from the perspective of the Aztec. All in all, a fascinating period of history.
