Ritual Aztec skulls found in Mexico
Published on January 10th, 2014 | by Admin0
Archaeologists announced…that excavations for a Mexico City subway extension have turned up what appears to be an unusual Aztec offering: a dog’s skull with holes that indicate it was displayed on a ritual skull rack normally reserved for human sacrifice victims.
Excavators also found a woman’s skull and two men’s skulls with similar perforations around the temple, which allowed them to be mounted on a public display rack known as a tzompantli.
