Excerpt from passage

The Aztecs were a nomadic tribe that lived in Mexico from the 12th century until around the 16th century. The Aztecs' innovative lifestyle has had an effect on today's culture in Mexico, along the Mexican and U.S. border, and even into the Southwestern states such as Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona.

 

The Aztecs originally lived in Northern Mexico. However, in the 13th century they moved south towards what is now modern day Mexico City. At the time Mexico City was known as Tenochtitlan. The Aztecs remained in this area until they were conquered by Spain in the 16th century.

 

The Aztecs made many advances in medicine, agricultural development, and art. They have developed many systems that are still in use today, though they have been adapted to modern society (continued...).
