Artefacts packs for sale

We now have available for purchase 4 artefact ‘packs’ to support your teaching work on Mexico: on the Aztecs, on the Day of the Dead festival, on Mexico Today (Geography), and (Autumn 2012) a new one on CHOCOLATE - for IPC schools. There is some overlap of course, and, though the prices shown are for the entire pack, you can buy the artefacts individually if you like (contact Mexicolore for details). Each pack is subject to a 20% P&P charge for carriage, and VAT. All the contents are hand made in Mexico, so please allow for variations and substitutions. Please contact Mexicolore directly to place an order (best way: post us an old fashioned Purchase Order from the school!)
