An Aztec residence circa 1500 AD. In the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan, the residential districts surrounded the downtown area. As the city was built upon an artificial island, the houses were separated via canals; travel through the city was mainly by boat. This middle-class household has an oven (uncommon in European cities of the time), a milpa (mixed-crop agriculture), and some turkeys in the enclosure.
