Wasn't it small pox and other viral infections? And yes, it was a non
intended conquering, the same happened in pacific islands, or any place
that did not have contacts with Europe since the ice age. Though, it was
only a matter of time, just like anywhere else in the world. If you go to
places where theses civilizations lived, people do have a phenotype which
is like those of natives. Contrast that with places where there wasn't
civilizations, such South America outside the Andes. People do tend to look
far less native American than anywhere else. I think the death was much
more limited then though, but enough to speed their demise.
