28 | Destination: Art - Teotihuacan

This August I took a trip to Mexico City. The museums and food were great but there was one site I couldn’t wait to see. Almost an hour outside of the city sits the remains of Teotihuacan. I knew a little about the site but wanted to talk with an expert. My guest today is Dr. Annabeth Headrick, Associate Professor, Mesoamerican, Native North American and Andean art at the University of Denver.

Even if you haven’t been to Mexico City (or don’t have plans to), this episode will provide insight and details about the culture that rivaled ancient Rome.
