----------------------------------------

Teotihuacan was constructed by inhabitants of the Valle del Mexico between 150AD and 700AD. In the 6th century, the population of the city numbered some 200,000, and the city was the centre of what was probably the largest pre-Hispanic civilization in Mexico.
