During construction of a parking lot for the Centro Cultural de España en México (CCEMx), workers made a startling discovery. There, lying beneath the dirt, were the vestiges of a school for Aztec nobles.
Based on archaeological evidence, the archaeologists declared that the site was a Calmecac. This place was meant to prepare nobles’ kids to become priests, warriors, governors, or even emperors. The classes included theology, rhetoric, strategy, and poetry. Students were also taught astrology and the interpretation of dreams.
