New Aztec Tomb Discovery

MP News Staff 

When Spaniard explorer/conqueror Hernan Cortes landed in Mexico in 1519 the Aztecs were the dominant society in the land, ruled by Montezuma in the region that is now Mexico City. However, the previous Aztec ruler, the uncle of Montezuma, was Emperor Ahuizotl, who is believed to had died in 1502.

Now, over 500 years later, archaeologists believe they have found the burial place of Ahuizotl in an underground chamber that has been detected by radar, just off the majestic zocalo in the center of Mexico City.

The chamber will be entered this fall in what could be a major discovery in the rich history of Mexico. Hopefully, Geraldo Rivera will not be allowed in the vicinity.
