Giant Aztec skull ‘tower’ unearthed in Mexico

Archaeologists in Mexico City have discovered 119 human skulls arranged in a “trophy” tower that the Aztecs built about 500 years ago, according to Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History. 

The new finding shows just how extensive the tower is; in 2015, researchers discovered part of the tower — thought to be the main trophy site in Aztec’s capital — and since then have found a total of 603 skulls embedded in the structure. The skulls buried there are the remains of sacrificed men, women and children, according to The Associated Press (AP).
