Most of the skeletal remains were discovered in lithic tombs known as “cistas” (rectangular caskets protected and covered by stone slabs) that also contained some 30 ceramic pieces, two of which have hieroglyphs, the INAH said in a statement.
The find was made during excavation work to expand a highway in that region, the INAH said.
