Fragments of an enormous pyramid built by ancient Aztecs have been uncovered right in the heart of Mexico City. The finding suggest Aztecs moved into the area nearly a thousand years ago, and makes Mexico City into one seriously ancient urban development.
The pyramid is about 35 feet high, and its ruins include a statue of an Aztec god, as well as several rooms full of skulls. This is completely cool in a kind of Chariots of the Gods kind of way. Even cooler is the way this photograph juxtaposes a background of thoroughly modern glass-and-concrete buildings with this chunk of ancient stone literally erupting out of the city's body.
