Travel back to the land of the Aztecs for stories of sacrifice, cannibalism and fancy diets. Featuring comedian Joel Dommett and historian Dr Caroline Dodds Pennock.
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!
