Aztalan, They Didn't Eat People For Food

I always liked the name Aztalan because it sounds like the King of Narnia but it's got its own cool history. Read about it here because I'm just not up to it. But I will give you this little nugget from an article in the Charlotte Observer:

                                              "Human remains at the site—those found in 1919 and those
                                               found since—'have been analyzed and don't fit the pattern
                                               of cannibalism...at least for food.'"
             
A section of the village stockade (900 - 1200 AD) is at the end of the path. Two giant matches (L) ready to light the fire?

    1. It's tucked away next to one of my favorite small towns, Sandee. I don't know what that stockade was for but I'm thinking...stock.

  5. I've only recently become interested in learning more about the various ancient peoples who lived on our continent. Seems to me that people eat others when there are no food sources. The taste of enemies would be disgusting, so I think. Cooking enemies because they couldn't stand them makes more sense.

    1. Ha, yes, maybe we should ask Jane Austin, cannibal. It strikes me as a religious thing. They were called, "The Mississippians" and came from Mexico so they could have brought some Aztec culture with them but I don't know much more about it. The cooking enemies, yes, but the eating them? Maybe they fed them to the livestock which would make for some pigs with dangerous tastes.
