After a rainstorm in Teotihuacán, northeast of Mexico City last May, a sinkhole developed, leading to the discovery of a tunnel running more than 30 feet underground, and leading from the Temple of the Moon to the Temple of the Sun. I'll let Smithsonian-dot-com tell you all about it:

Fascinatin' stuff, sports fans.

@Setanta,
Cool. Lots of loot to study. It would be nice if they could crack the language.

That's a problem in that the folks at Teotihuacan were not speakers of Nahuatl, the language of their successors. The Nahua peoples treated the city as a sacred place, and I don't believe anyone knows if it were occupied when the Nahua arrived. The Azteca, the Cholulans, the Texcocans, the Tlaxcalans, etc., were all Nahua peoples.

@Setanta,
I have had the opportunity to visit there some years ago. Just remember it was easy climbing up, but climbing down was difficult. This scene seems familiar. https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/2f/SSA41434.JPG/300px-SSA41434.JPG&imgrefurl=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teotihuacan&h=225&w=300&tbnid=_uSnHftWpaUGCM:&tbnh=160&tbnw=213&usg=__WSgh09HfJHHlB6-rE5b5iMRqeSQ=&vet=10ahUKEwi4rbiJ0rrXAhWJjFQKHfmOCRcQ_B0IiAEwCg..i&docid=SS0js5Hgtx5NYM&itg=1&client=opera&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi4rbiJ0rrXAhWJjFQKHfmOCRcQ_B0IiAEwCg
