Fresh From BBC Discovery in Mexico

Ancient pyramid found in Mexico

Archaeologists have discovered an ancient pyramid buried under a hill on the outskirts of Mexico City.
The pyramid is said to be 1,500 years old and was built by the same ancient people who constructed the Teotihuacan complex, known as the City of the Gods.

Parts of the structure have been badly damaged as the hill has been used for decades to stage re-enactments of the crucifixion of Christ during Holy Week. The religious celebration is attended by as many as one million devotees.

Measuring 150m (492 feet) on each of its four sides, the 18-metre (59-foot) tall pyramid was carved out on a natural hillside around 500 AD.

It was abandoned in about 800 AD, when the Teotihuacan culture collapsed for unknown reasons.
