Ancient Americas is a community devoted to the cultures, archaeology and languages of ancient North, Meso- and South American civilizations and peoples.

From the Native American tribes of North America to the mighty empires of the Aztecs, Maya and Incas, this community is a place where enthusiasts and amateurs alike can discuss and share their thoughts and works.

What You Can Post Here

+ General discussion on any aspect related to the native peoples (past and present) of the Americas. This can include discussions on archaeology, culture, native American languages and even contemporary issues surrounding the study of these.

+ News articles concerning any aspect of these native peoples (remember to credit the sources!).

+ Resources for the study of ancient American peoples.

+ Icons, art and any other 'fan works', including historical fiction.

Please observe any copyright regulations when posting material other than your own and always be sure to keep discussions on-topic as much as possible.

Community Rules

+ Respect the views of other members and refrain from 'flaming'. Treat others as you'd like to be treated.

+ Credit other people's work if they request it and do not pass off other people's work as your own.
