Ancient Colima Tomb Find

INAH has found a large ancient Colima tomb with the skeletal remains of at least 12 male individuals buried at 300 CE. Several have cranial deformation, and the teeth show they had severe dental problems. Several grave offerings were found, including two anthropomorphic sculptures. They are in the traditional Colima art style. This find is an unusual non-looted tomb in the area of the city of Colima.

INAH has the report with a photo here (in Spanish);
