Archaeology Webinar – The People of the Sun: Origins of the Aztecs

Join us for a special story, told by acclaimed archeologist and tour guide Albert Coffee. It is a story of time and place, a mixture of history and legend, of myth and mystery. It is a tale of inspiration which has led to Mexico’s present day national identity, one that shares universal concepts and sheds light upon present day concerns.

Looking to the past and touching upon elements of art and culture, Albert links Mexico’s past and present, searching for an understanding of its place in the future. Please join us for a unique experience and a chance to hear a story that most have never heard.
