Aztec Skull Tower
A tower of human skulls unearthed beneath the heart of
Mexico City has raised new questions about the culture of sacrifice in
the Aztec Empire after crania of women and children surfaced among the
hundreds embedded in the forbidding structure.
Archaeologists have found more than 650 skulls caked in lime
and thousands of fragments in the cylindrical edifice near the site of
the Templo Mayor, one of the main temples in the Aztec capital
Tenochtitlan, which later became Mexico City.
