A visitor to downtown Mexico City might be amazed at the beauty of the Mannerist buildings, Baroque churches and Art Nouveau hotels without realising that this was once a lake where, in 1325, the wandering Aztecs found their promised land. This talk will trace the major archaeological discoveries since 1978 until the present day.
