Aztec Life 10 Surprising Features & Question

Question Description

I’m working on a history writing question and need a sample draft to help me learn.

Read the Michael E. Smith article “Life in the Provinces of the Aztec Empire” As you work through the article, compile a list of ten (10) surprising features of Aztec life. To qualify as “surprising,” the items needs to be things not listed in the book or powerpoint (or, incorrect in the book?). Each item has to be described sufficiently, e.g., “they used cotton to…” rather than “they used cotton.” After compiling your list, write a short paragraph (approx 100 words) attempting to answer the following question: If life in the Aztec provinces was so complex, why have historians paid less attention to this civilization (or, why have histories of this civilization been problematic)?
