Archaeologists from the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) have discovered the burial of a beheaded warrior and a oven prehistoric dedicated to the production of ceramics, both belonging to the late Classic Period (350-600 AD). The find is at the foot of the El Tlatoani hill, west of the Municipality of Tlayacapan in Morelos.
The archeologist Raúl Francisco González Quesada, from the INAH of Morelos affirmed that the burial was found in the excavation of the lower part of the mountain, an urban area with two monuments.
“We found a coffin with an individual along with some very valuable furniture. His outfit consists of a kind of cap and a necklace of green stones, along with other articles of this material and other containers. Among the skeletal remains, the lower limbs and cervical vertebrae were identified with cuts, indicating that he was beheaded."Said the specialist.
Experts believe that it is a warrior since his skull has a hole caused perhaps by the tip of an arrow, a wound that the individual survived, since the wound was closed years after his death.
“Given the characteristics of the funeral attire and the location of the burial, it can be deduced that the individual belonged to an elite of Tlayacapan society. The pieces are currently being restored«Commented the expert.
Since last year, INAH has operated on the El Tlatoani hill in Sierra de Tepoztlan, Morelos, where dozens of deposits are located. One of them is a temple possibly built in 600 AD.
Raúl Francisco confirmed that The Tlatoani is not open to the public Well, it is currently a research area and it is larger than they had thought. They try to discover who built and those in charge of maintaining the temple, as well as what the elites and communities of farmers and artisans who participated in this sanctuary were like.
In another area of the excavation, in which it is believed that communities of artisans and farmers lived, a kiln made to produce ceramic items, from prehistoric times, has been found.
By last, Raúl added that thanks to these findings, they will be able to obtain more information about the culture and society of Tlayacapan.
I am currently studying Journalism and Audiovisual Communication at the Rey Juan Carlos University, which has made me inclined towards the international section, including the study of languages. For this reason, I do not rule out dedicating myself to teaching. I also like to practice physical exercise and spend a pleasant time chatting with my acquaintances and with new people. Lastly, I enjoy traveling to know the authentic culture of each region of the world, although I admit that before I need to find out as much as possible about the place I'm going to visit, to fully enjoy the experience.
