1,500-year-old burial site discovered in Mexico


Human remains there were piled on top of each other, perhaps as part of an ancient ritual.

Archaeologists have discovered a tomb in the western Mexican state of Nayarit that is about 1,500 years old. This was reported by the National Institute of Anthropology and History of Mexico (INAH).

The discovery was made during the construction of a sewer system in Pozo de Ibarra.

“The burial contained a complete skeleton and bones of another person, some of which were deliberately put together and divided according to type – femurs with femurs, hands with hands, etc. All the skulls were -belonging to men of all ages, some with signs of cranial modification typical of Mesoamerica,” the report said.

Archaeologists say that the bones were buried at the same time, and the ritual resembles those of the Amapá period (500-850 AD).

Ceramic vessels and figurines found at the site help date the burial.

Scientists also believe that this burial could be part of a family burial ceremony associated with the creation of a new community. However, according to INAH, no other similar cases have been recorded in the region.

We remind you that archaeologists have completely excavated the remains of the Temple of Artemis on the island of Euboea (Greece), which was built around 700 BC.

The upper part of a statue of Pharaoh Ramses II was discovered in Egypt.
