All societies bury their leaders in some form of pomp and ceremony.
All the signs point to it being a ruler's tomb, Gomez said, including the rich offerings tossed into the tunnel at the moment it was closed up: almost 50 000 objects of jade, stone, shell and pottery, including ceramic beakers of a kind never found before at the site.
Mexico City's Zócalo, the Plaza de la Constitución, is located at the location of Tenochtitlan's original central plaza and market, and many of the original calzadas still correspond to modern streets in the city. The Aztec sun stone was located in the ruins. This stone is 4 meters in diameter and weighs over 20 tonnes. It was once located half way up the great pyramid. This sculpture was made around 1470 CE under the rule of King Axayacatl, the predecessor of Tizoc, and is said to tell the Aztec history and prophecy for the future.

Well if you want to get all racist about it then you should really be upset with the Spanish. Or are the considered white now? You know when they do something negative? Ahh, Who can keep up with all this race BS.

I can't remember where I read it, but it was a very ancient greek book with prophecies etc. and it said that Alexander the Great was sent from God to many places on earth to seal the tunnels leading to the underworld as in Hollow earth etc. where God had banned all the Nephilim. Those egyptian "gods" too. (I don't recall all their names but it's those creatures with the head of a wolf, bird etc..)
Just wanted to note that this is not true. For example, many groups in Europe ceremonially cremated people, including leaders.

I agree the race comment is BS, but technically, the Spanish are ethnically 'categorized' as being white. Same as the rest of the Mediterranean peoples, and also the Arabs.
This isn't a personal opinion of mine you understand, it's apparently official, whatever that means.

This is fantastic, even though mainstream archeology will slant it to fit their historic model, enough clues should become available for the likes of Hancock, Bauvalb etc.. to perhaps gain some tie ins to their own theories.
I am personally excited to see if they find any more archaic sumerian cuneiform as in the Fuentes Bowl. There are sooo many possibilities with these types of finds.
This has made my day...btw thanks for the pick of the tunnel excavation whomever that was.
