Archaeologists from Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History have discovered a 2,400-year-old gravesite with ten bodies entwined in a circle. The burial site lies in a village that existed long before the Aztecs, in the southern part of what is now Mexico City. Bodies had one arm placed below the back of the next in the six-foot-wide round pit. Some bodies show aesthetic modification—dental filing and head reshaping. Some hold stones or ceramic spheres. The arrangement of the dead implies a single event, not a buildup of remains. The nature of that event is a mystery.
