Moctezuma is here! This new section coincides with the opening of the major exhibition at the British Museum (Autumn 2009). We will assemble here a wide range of articles and reports that we feel are of interest to teachers and learners alike...

The Mexicolore team attended the Teachers’ Preview of Moctezuma - it was a privilege to be among the first non-Museum-staff to see the beautiful exhibits... We were treated to a gallery tour and talk by the curator, Colin McEwan.

December 2009: We’ve now run plenty of workshops at the BM this term. One recent comment from someone who attended a Family Day Aztec workshop with Mexicolore: ‘Very informative for adults and children. Extremely well presented by people with a passion for the subject.’
