1162 FreeThinkingMan For those interested in how their civilization ended. > After hearing of the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire and having the native population much diminished by an epidemic of smallpox, the cazonci Tangaxuan II pledged his allegiance as a vassal of the King of Spain without a fight in 1525. It is believed that the Spanish conquistador Cristóbal de Olid, upon arriving in the Tarascan State, now in present-day Michoacán, explored some parts of Guanajuato in the early 1520s. A legend relates of a 16- or 17-year-old Purépecha, Princess Erendira, who led her people into a fierce war against the Spanish. Using stolen Spanish horses, her people learned to ride into battle. In 1529 to 1530, the Spanish forces entered Michoacán and some parts of Guanajuato with an army of 500 Spanish soldiers and more than 10,000 Indian warriors. > Then, in 1530, the president of the Real Audiencia, Nuño de Guzmán, a conquistador notorious for his ruthlessness and brutality towards the Indians, plundered the region and executed Tangaxuan II, destroying the Purépecha State and provoking a chaotic situation and widespread violence. In 1533, the Crown sent an experienced Oidor (Judge of the Audiencia) and later bishop, Don Vasco de Quiroga, who managed to establish a lasting colonial rule. The lands of the Purépecha was subjected to serious deforestation during the Spanish Colonial period. [2]épecha

297 lastoftheromans123 I’d love to see this tech used in the United States to find mound-builder ruins. I bet the results in the Saint Louis area could shed a lot of light on the extent of Cahokia.
34 TheNamesMcCreee > Archeologists initially found Angamuco in 2007 and tried to explore the area the traditional way on the ground, but realised it would take at least 10 years to map out the area. So we could have possibly finished the map last year?
22 Tweeeked LiDAR data is actually super interesting and it has a ton of potential. I had a job in undergrad classifying objects captured by LiDAR for power companies. Incredibly boring role, but interesting to see how LiDAR works. Glad to see it being used for interesting discoveries.
48 isisishtar Amazing! I bet it was a great vacation spot. I'd like to see this lidar technology applied to the Amazon jungle, to find out what sort of ancient buildings might be hidden there.
34 cre8ngjoy There’s a National Geographic special on the lidar a system where they used it in Guatemala to map out previously unknown Mayan ruins. It was fascinating.
