The Aztecs and Mayans were two Mesoamerican civilizations that had much in common. One similar characteristic had to do with agriculture. Maize was a staple food for both groups and it was cultivated in large amounts to feed the people of their empire.
They also both had a similar social structure that had nobles and religious leaders at the top followed by the warrior class and then peasants and slaves.
Both civilizations observed 365 day calendars with similar markings and day/month symbols. They also both worshipped a pantheon of gods during religious ceremonies, some of which involved human sacrifice.
Both groups also built similar pyramid structures for religious purposes.
