Share Night Talk: Ritual violence in Mesoamerica

Event Details

Dr Chris Carter, archaeologist from ANU

Cultural violence in pre-Columbian Mesoamerica has been an area of interest to scholars since the time of the Spanish conquest of the Aztec empire. Violence was manifest in many forms, from self-inflicted blood-letting, to human sacrificial rituals (including men, women and children) and widespread cannibalism. Join Chris Carter as he discusses the archaeological evidence and compares this to the historic record.
