1 July - 10 October 2010. Before being destroyed by a devastating fire in the 7th century, the city of Teotihuacan was a powerful political, military, economic and cultural centre to which all of Mesoamerica looked for inspiration.
Once home to over 160,000 people, the downfall of the city and dispersal of its people is shrouded in mystery to this day; however its remains the most visited of Mexico's 170 archaeological sites.
This exhibition offers visitors the privileged opportunity to view 450 artefacts from this lost civilisation, including stone carvings and masks discovered in recent excavations. The highlight of the show is the display of 15 large fragments of murals which were painted 2,000 years ago.
