The tower is believed to have been built out of the remains from Aztec warriors, and is sure to have struck fear into the hearts of any who stood before it.
The tower actually has it’s own infamy, being referenced by the Spanish conquistadors during their conquest of Mexico in the 16th century.
The structure was discovered near Mexico City’s Metropolitan Cathedral, and so far 676 skulls have been counted. What shocked archaeologists is that skulls of women and children were also found to be a part of the tower.
“We were expecting just men, obviously young men, as warriors would be, and the thing about the women and children is that you’d think they wouldn’t be going to war,” said Rodrigo Bolanos, one of the researchers who has been investigating the site.
“Something is happening that we have no record of, and this is really new, a first.”
