A 1,200-year-old Zapotec tomb has been found at the site of Atzompa in Oaxaca.

 

The discovery in the southern state of Oaxaca was made during work to preserve the remains of what the experts believe was a home inhabited between A.D. 750-900, the National Institute of Anthropology and History, or INAH, said in a statement.

The tomb, which contained the skeletal remains of two adults, is the fourth to be discovered in that satellite city of Monte Alban. In early 2012, a funerary complex consisting of three tombs was found inside a building in the elite sector of Atzompa.
