The Codex Aubin Project reanimates and contextualizes an important and never before translated manuscript of Aztec history. In pictures and texts, the book tells of the migration out of Aztlan, the foundation of their capital of Tenochtitlan, the Spanish conquest of 1519-21, and the aftermath. Written in the Aztec language of Nahuatl, it has never been fully translated into English before, nor have its glyphs and images been fully explored. The project, hosted at Fordham University, has three components. First, an online exhibition of Mexican history in the codices. Second, a collaborative transcription of the Nahuatl text and translation into English. Third, a digital map of the images found in the Codex Aubin.
