2,800-year-old altar found in Mexico

A stone altar which dates back nearly 3,000 years has been found at Chalcatzingo in Mexico.

“The discovery shows allow us to understand how they used their objects and how they managed to use them as part of rituals. They usually used bowls during their rituals. This was probably a place of worship, or living quarters for high priests, not for commoners.”

The altar dates back to the Middle Pre-classic period, between 800 and 500 BC when local settlements were influenced by the Olmecs.
