Abstract
I researched Mexico City and the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan, it used to be an island city with causeways and canals. I chose a specific site in Tenochtitlan called Tlatelolco, today it is called the Plaza de Tres Culturas. I looked at this site in three different time periods. They were the era of pre-Columbus Aztec society, the time of the Conquistadors in Tenochtitlan and today's Mexico City.
