    Bronze Age “Chinese Mesoamerica” in AH works?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olmec_alternative_origin_speculations So I’ve seen AH & sci-fi stories use the “Zheng He‘s treasure ships contact New World civilizations” premise as their POD, but I can’t think of any works based around the idea of Ancient Chinese forming the Olmec. Does anyone...
  2. WI: Aztecs never arrive in the Valley of Mexico

    What if the Aztecs never relocated to the Valley of Mexico? How would that affect things?

    WI: The Aztecs beats the Spanish...

    ...then collapses in on itself. All it’s vassals breakaway, and the entirety of Mesoamerica is Balkanized. What’s left of the Aztec Empire are the original triple alliance city-states. What’s left is a power vacuum, but what Mesoamerican state can fill this void? What Mesoamerican state could...
  4. Advice on what would happen if the Aztecs defeated the Spanish in 1520 and how would it happen?

    Hello everybody. Well, this is my first time posting on Alternatehistory.com since I've heard of this site since I was on the AltHistory Wiki in Wikia/FANDOM. But I am currently here because I need advice on a timeline I am writing on the Alternate History Wiki on Miraheze called Mexica Victory...
  5. WI: There was no Europe to colonize the Americas?

    Imagine a scenario where there was no European countries to discover the Americas and the native empires and tribes would gradually start to become more, slightly, advanced. I know the Inca, Aztecs, and other Mesoamerican civilizations were more advanced than most native tribes but with the...
  6. Mayan in Central America

    What if that the mayan cities started to send a large amount of people to new cities toward Guatemala and Honduras and further south over time starting in the mid classic age. When the pop of their cities reach capacity they would gives these people the resource to start the new cities.
  7. Thoughts on Postclassic Mesoamerica and its development

    This was originally a post for my Pre-Columbian timeline here, but I thought it was worth posting here for general discussion. I'm breaking up the original post since it was such a hassle to edit (it's ten pages long in Word, not including the pictures). I. Introduction to the Postclassic...
  8. Land of Sweetness: A Pre-Columbian Timeline

    Here goes nothing. ***** The night was deep on Guanahani Island, and the world was asleep. The heavens were black, the stars and the half-moon’s steady light alone illuminating the rows of ripening maize and drying fish. Even the parrots were quiet. Only the whistles of the hutias and the...
  9. What Animals Could Have Benefitted Mesoamerican Civilizations?

    Okay everyone, here is something that could be of interest. No, this is not what-if certain animals that went extinct survived to our time because this is not allowed and too much to speculate. Instead, what animals from Europe and or Africa could've thrived in Mesoamerica (i.e. Mexico and...
  10. Carthaginian Escape, Scipio's Fear, West African outposts...Mesoamerica, 146 B.C.

    As we know the Carthaginians were rounded up following the destruction of Carthage and its surviving inhabitants sold into slavery across the scattered Republic. But undoubtedly, there were escapees. Likely, however, the significance of the fugitive Carthaginian refugees was light, nevertheless...
  11. Caribbean Hansa ?

    Speculation: I was reading about the Hansa league the other day. And what caught my attention was their war against King Valdemar IV of Denmark, which went quite well for them. In 1368 they captured Copenhagen and forced the King to flee. He appointed Henning Podebusk to negotiate, and Podebusk...

    WI: Consequences of a Mayan-Aztec cultural/technological connection

    Suppose that: -a very large earthquake occurs in Yucatan, expelling a lot of mayans, destroying infrastructure, and forcing such refugees to flee. They decide to flee west, and end up finding the aztecs. This one may be more detrimental to the mayans. -or, some mayan city-state grows into too...
  14. WI: Spaniards are killed at Tenochtitlan, but native allies succeed.

    This is an idea for a TL that I might make, I would just like to get some ideas and see if it is a possible POD. So here is how I think it could happen. When the people of Tenochtitlan rose up against the Spaniards and Tlaxcalans, many of the Spaniards were killed. In OTL, Cortes mourned them...

    Reunited League of Mayapan

    I tried looking into this but I couldn't find anything. When the Spanish came and started conquering, were there any calls to reunite the League of Mayapan to fight back against the Spanish invaders? If so, how would it work? Could it do anything?

    Lands of Bronze and Fire - An American Domestication Timeline, Take Two
    Threadmarks: I. Lands of Bronze and Fire, the Uurung, and the First Cradle

    Northern *New Mexico, ca. 10,500 BCE The chorus of whistling birds filled the early morning with joyous sound, masking the footfalls of the hunter as he trod gingerly through the scrub grasses. Out into the scrubland he had dashed, following the familiar traces until he'd come nearly within...
