    I love these kinds of posts, not just for the historical archeology, but for the triggering of cool "alternate history" fiction ideas.

    What if Europeans didn't make contact until a century later, and instead found a North American civilization that was their equal in technology and military capability? How would the world look today?

    What if, for some reason it was the Aztecs, in their renaissance, that sailed the ocean blue and caught Europe during it's "Dark Age?"

    These notions have probably already been explored. I wish I was a more prolific writer.
