150 skulls from human sacrifice discovered in Mexico, stunning experts
The skulls of around 150 human sacrifice victims have been unearthed in a field in central Mexico. It's one of the first times such a large discovery has been made outside a major pyramid or temple complex.
"The interesting question is, why are we seeing this kind of sacrificial act that we often associate with something like Teotihuacan or a big center. Why do we see this … in a place that's not associated with these cities?" Georgia State University archaeologist Christopher Morehart told AP. He found the skulls in Xaltocan, a farming village north of Mexico City.
