Avocado planters stumble across ancient pyramid

Published on August 27th, 2009 | by Admin


While looking for a place to plant avocado, two men in Mexico discovered a previously unknown yacata pyramid.

After covering the area, the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) expert ratified there is one 4 meters pyramid with a 20 by 14 meters rectangular base and 6 staggered bodies. Conservation state is good.

The monument could have been part of a Classic period (300-850 AD) ceremonial center, possibly influenced by Teotihuacan, informed the specialist, adding there are other elements in the site that are currently in exploration stage.
