New Mexico, December 14: A large pile of human skulls has been found during excavations in the Mexican capital, New Mexico. It is said that these skulls are 500 years old and date back to the Aztec Empire. According to researchers, these people may have been sacrificed to build huge towers in the Aztec Empire. This pile of human skulls has targeted the entire world. Many renowned archaeologists from around the world have traveled to Mexico to see the excavations.
The tower was discovered during an excavation project in Mexico City. Archaeologists have so far unearthed the remains of 119 victims. The National Institute of Anthropology and History announced that the tower was found in the old capital of the Aztec Empire and that the remains of the tower included children, men and women.
According to archaeologist Raul Barrera, ‘We cannot say how many of these people were warriors, some of whom may have been imprisoned for sacrifice. These people have been sacrificed to please the gods. The barrel-like tower is located near Tempo Mayor, the most famous museum in Mexico City and the temple of the then Empire.
Today’s Mexico City is considered to be the capital of the Aztec Empire in ancient times. At that time, the city was known as Tenochtitlan. A large number of ancient human remains have already been found in the vicinity of the site where the skull tower was found. Archaeologists have already unearthed several towers that were built between 1486 and 1502.
According to historians, the city was attacked by the Spanish King Hern कॉn Cortसs in 1521, when he built several such buildings. The bodies of the captured soldiers were disposed of in that building. This is probably the warrior and prisoner whose remains are being found. The tower is about 5 meters wide with human skulls found.
