Evidence of Child Sacrifice Found in Toltec Tomb

Construction crews have discovered a tomb near the town of Tula in Mexico containing the bones of twenty four children believed sacrificed in the ancient Toltec capital. The remains were estimated to be between AD 950 and 1150. Luis Gamboa of the Mexican National Institute of Anthropology and History says the children were aged between five and fifteen years, except for one. They are believed to have been taken from a different region and offered to the rain god Tlaloc, a statue of which had been found in the tomb. Read the details here.
