The bones of an ancient Toltec child-sacrifice victim

Bones of an ancient child-sacrifice victim are displayed in Tula, Mexico, April 19, 2007. The discovery of 24 children’s skeletons in a mass grave at Tula may be the first evidence that the ancient Toltec civilization sacrificed children, according to archaeologist Luis Gamboa. The bones, dating from A.D. 950 to 1150, indicate that the children had been decapitated in a group, he said.
