You're Dead To Me - The Aztecs

The Aztecs

Download The Aztecs

Travel back to the land of the Aztecs to discover that they’re not that dissimilar to the Tudors, but with more human sacrifices.

Greg Jenner is joined by comedian Joel Dommett and historian Dr Caroline Dodds Pennock to ask just how much food can be traced back to the Aztecs? Was cannibalism really a respectful process? And at what age were Aztec children expected to contribute to the family? It’s history for people who don’t like history!

Produced by Dan Morelle
Script by Greg Jenner
Research by Emma Nagouse assisted by Josh Daniels

A Muddy Knees Media production for BBC Radio 4
