150 skulls discovered deep in a cave in Mexico for more than 1,000 years.

When these skulls were first discovered in a cave in Chiapas state, Mexico in 2012, the police initially believed this was a murder because the scene occurred near the Guatemala border, one of the areas notorious for violence and human trafficking.

The Daily Star reported that the investigation team believed they were victims murdered by gangs and searched for other body parts.

After 10 years of extensive searching, experts have now concluded that these victims were not murdered, but were sacrificed in rituals to worship the Aztec gods that took place millennia ago (period). approximately from 900 to 1200 AD).

A spokesman for Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) said: “After excavation, the remains were taken out of the cave, to the state capital Tuxtla Gutiérrez to conduct research and investigate. Experts determined the victims had been decapitated, their skulls pierced through the temples and displayed on a wooden stand known as a “tzompantli” or “skull altar.”

After analysis, the research team determined that these human skulls were about 1,100 years old, mainly of adult women. The special feature here is that all of the skulls have had their teeth extracted.

It can be said that this is not the first time a “skull altar” has been found in Mexico. In 2017, archaeologists discovered about 650 crucified skulls at the Temple of Mayor, the world-famous Aztec temple in Mexico City.

A few years later, Mexican archaeologists found the bodies of more than 100 men, women and children who were likely sacrificed to ancient gods.
