Mexican Archaeologists Unearth Ancient 1100 Year Old Burial Chamber

Archaeologists have discovered an ancient 1,100-year-old burial chamber at the archeological site of Atzompa, in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. The funerary complex, consisting of three burial chambers, is different from the previously discovered finds in the region. It was located inside a building designed exclusively to house a series of tombs placed vertically, one above another, and unlike the ones found so far, they are not underground, according to the National Institute of Anthropology and History.
