A 1,500-year-old burial was discovered in Mexico

Human remains there were stacked on top of each other, probably as part of an ancient ritual.

Archaeologists have discovered a burial site in the western Mexican state of Nayarit that is about 1,500 years old. This was announced by the National Institute of Anthropology and History of Mexico (INAH).

The discovery was made during the construction of the sewage system in Poso de Ybarra.

"One complete skeleton and the bones of other people were found in the burial, some of which were deliberately put together and separated by type – femurs with femurs, brushes with brushes, etc. All the skulls belonged to men of various ages, some of which showed signs of cranial modification, typical for Mesoamerica," the message reads.

Archaeologists say that the bones were buried at the same time and that the ritual resembled the rites of the Amapa period (500-850 AD).

Ceramic vessels and figurines found at the site helped date the burial.

Scientists also believe that this burial could be part of a family funeral rite associated with the founding of a new settlement. However, according to INAH, no other similar cases have been recorded in the region.

It will be recalled that archaeologists completely excavated the remains of the Temple of Artemis on the island of Euboea (Greece), which was built around 700 BC.
