Aztec Pyramid Ruins Found in Poor Neighborhood


Aztec pyramid ruins
Mexico City - In the news on August 2, 2007, Aztec pyramid ruins have resurfaced in a poor district of Mexico City after more than 500 years underground. Razed by Hernan Cortes in the sixteenth century, a construction project revealed walls from the Aztec pyramid ruins. The neighborhood of Iztapalapa in which the Aztec pyramid ruins were found is well-known for its drugs and violent crime. Due to urban congestion and overcrowding, the ruins of the Aztec pyramid found in June beneath the neighborhood's central plaza have long remained hidden, although researchers knew generally where they lay. Other important ruins associated with the Aztec pyramid building culture have recently been excavated including an important Aztec altar. The pyramid shown right is an example of the Aztec pyramid building ruins found, although obviously mainly intact.
