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:
A Secret Tunnel Found in Mexico May Finally Solve the Mysteries of Teotihuacán
Fascinatin' stuff, sports fans.
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.
Interesting, thanks for posting this. I've been there a couple of times, long ago. Now to read the article..
