A 500-year-old skull of a prisoner of war has been found at the foot of the Great Temple at Tlatelolco.
In a communique, the INAH said the small offering was found at the foot of the Great Temple on the pre-Columbian site after a custodian reported “what appeared to be a buried vessel.”
Archaeologist Salvador Guilliem, director of the Tlatelolco Project, said the skull, found on top of the vessel, was from a young adult male, “very probably a prisoner of war.”
