After 8 months, archaeologists of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) have located, 12 meters below, the entrance to the tunnel that leads to galleries under the Feathered Serpent Temple, in Teotihuacan, where rests of rulers of the ancient city might have been deposited.
In a visit with the media, the director of Tlalocan Project: Underground Road, the archaeologist Sergio Gómez Chávez, announced the advances of exploration conducted by INAH in the tunnel closed nearly 1,800 years ago by Teotihuacan dwellers.
INAH specialists plan to enter the tunnel in 2 months, to be the first persons to come in after its closure. This excavation -the deepest made at the Prehispanic site- is part of the commemorations of the 100th anniversary of archaeological excavations at Teotihuacan and its opening to public.archeological, archeologist, archeology, excavation, prehispanic, tunnel, underground
