Write like an Aztec!

The Aztecs used a complex writing system similar to the hieroglyphics of the ancient Egyptians. The books they created are called codices, or one is a codex. There are Aztec codices left today in museums and at universities and they tell us how they lived until the Spanish Conquest in the early 1500’s.
