Begins with the Olmecs and Zapotecs, the episode traces the Aztec takeover from the North, their military conquests, and their sacrifices to the sun god. It also covers Aztec ingenuity in the construction of garden sites on swampy ground and achievements, such as a public education system, Aztec calendar, and Aztec mathematics. Students learn that human civilization began to take form once nomads learned to farm and that the Aztecs developed staple crops that are commonplace today. They also learn of Aztec religious beliefs and why the Aztecs welcomed Hernan Cortéz as a god, rather than a military leader, who would eventually destroy their civilization. The episode compares the history of the Aztec Empire with that of the Ottoman Empire that was expanding rapidly under Suleiman's leadership. Also available in Spanish
