INAH Finds Two Sealed Chambers at the Templo Mayor—Could be Aztec Ruler Tombs

INAH has found a tunnel like passageway that may lead to two sealed chambers at the Templo Mayor. The tunnel is sealed by a 3 ton rock. They had earlier found bones of eagles and two infant skulls in an offering box. It appears they were decapitated. Sacrifice knives were also found as well as other body parts at this place. INAH dug into the area and found the tunnel entrances. They will begin excavating the tunnels in 2016 to see if Aztec rulers may be buried there. If this is found, this would be the first discovery of Aztec rulers tombs.

US News has the report here;
