650 Skulls from Aztec Times Uncovered in the Zocalo in Mexico City in a Cylindrical Tower

Archaeologists have found 650 skulls caked in lime near the Temple Mayor. They were placed in a cylindrical tower. These skulls were placed in one of the skull racks on display at Tenochtitlan. Skulls of women and children were found among the skulls. This was an unexpected surprise. Were the skulls of women and children displayed on skull racks?

The Guardian has the story here with photos;


And here is the same story in the Daily Mail with their usual display of many photos.
