The many achievements of the ancient Egyptians include the quarrying, surveying and construction techniques that supported the building of monumental pyramids, temples, and obelisks; a system of mathematics, a practical and effective system of medicine, irrigation systems and agricultural production techniques, the first known planked boats, Egyptian faience and glass technology, new forms of literature, and the earliest known peace treaty, made with the Hittites. Egypt left a lasting legacy. Its art and architecture were widely copied, and its antiquities carried off to far corners of the world. Its monumental ruins have inspired the imaginations of travelers and writers for centuries. A new-found respect for antiquities and excavations in the early modern period by Europeans and Egyptians led to the scientific investigation of Egyptian civilization and a greater appreciation of its cultural legacy. 🗣💭❤️ Mesoamerica was a region and cultural area in the Americas, extending up there approximately from central Mexico to Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and northern Costa Rica, within which pre-Columbian societies flourished before the Spanish colonization of the Americas in the 15th and 16th centuries. It is one of six areas in the world where ancient civilization arose independently, and the second in the Americas along with Norte Chico (Caral-Supe) in present-day northern coastal Peru. Among the earliest complex civilizations was the Olmec culture, which inhabited the Gulf coast of Mexico and extended inland and southwards across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. Frequent contact and cultural interchange between the early Olmec and other cultures in Chiapas, Guatemala and Oaxaca laid the basis for the Mesoamerican cultural area. All this was facilitated by considerable regional communications in ancient Mesoamerica, especially along the Pacific coast. 🗣💭❤️ #egyptians #mesoamerican

My touristy pose: I present to you, Pyramid of the Magician!

Exploring the Pyramid of the Sun #teotihuacan #pyrimidofthesun #mesoamerican #mexico

These Classic #Veracruz yokes, 600-900 CE, are ceremonial stone replicas of the padded girdles worn around the waist of #Mesoamerican ball game players. #PreColumbian #artoftheday

And now an Aztec version of those cross-legged statues; this is from Mexico, along the Gukf Coast, 600-1000 AD, so about the same time as the Mississippian one and the Cherokee one.

Opened in 2011, this is the view from the top of the entrance to Complex A or “13 Sky House” - a critical space for celestial observation and calculations based on the construction of this sunken patio. At the top of the complex is the Red Temple on the left. The right side was destroyed. It is believed to have been built in 530 AD by the Otomi people an indigenous ethnic group inhabiting the central Mexican Plateau region of Mexico.
