What Have They Found Under an Ancient Mexican Pyramid? (Video)

Archeologists have just discovered a treasure chest of over 50,000 ancient relics in an underground tunnel under one of the oldest pyramids in Mexico.

Thirty miles outside of Mexico City is a pyramid and temple complex called Teotihuacan which is believed to have been built between the 1st and 7th century AD.

Now a world heritage site, this pre-Hispanic city was once referred to as “the place where the Gods were created”. This latest unearthing is said to be the biggest discovery at the site in over 100 years.

The tunnel where the artifacts were discovered is at the base of the Temple of the Feathered Serpent, a tunnel archeologists believe was sealed 1,800 years ago.

Among the artifacts discovered are arrowheads, seashells, animal bones, pottery, seeds, statues, and even jade ornaments.

The discovery of the tunnel is expected to help archeologists determine who built the city and who were its inhabitants.

Guesstimates say the city would of had a population of over 100,000 at its peak.

 It’s not known why Teotihuacan was abandoned by its inhabitants.
