New Research on Aztec Skull Masks

Resarchers are studying the 30 gruesome skull masks created by the Aztecs at the Templo Mayor. They have found that all were adult males  between 30-45 years of age. Their dental record shows they were of high status and probably warriors. They may have been captured warriors or nobility from defeated towns. There were unmodifed skulls that show they came from poorer classes.

The Daily Mail has the report here with extensive photos;
