Ancient Aztec Capital beneath Modern Mexico City
Mexican archaeologists have found that the tomb of an Aztec emperor lied beneath a recently excavated stone monolith showing a fearsome blood-drinking god. They also detected underground chambers, which were believed to contain the remains of Emperor Ahuizotl by using ground-penetrating radar. The discovery opened an extraordinary window into Aztec civilization and collected thousands of ancient items reflecting its life as well as outstanding incidents at that time. A series of photos such as the stone of earth goddess Tlaltecuhtli, the image of moon goddess Coyolxauhqui and various buried offerings will help readers partly know about the brilliant period of Aztec community.
