La torre dei teschi

Per oltre 500 anni fu considerata una leggenda tramandata di generazione in generazione. Una leggenda capace di terrorizzare i conquistadores spagnoli, giunti in Messico per espugnare quella che una volta era la capitale dell’impero azteco: Tenochtitlan.

Le scoperte archeologiche, iniziate nel 2015, svelarono che non era una leggenda, ma una parte di storia che poco conosciamo.

Svelarono che ci sono dei rituali che ancora non conosciamo, poiché tra i seicentosettantasei teschi rinvenuti, ve ne sono diversi di bambini e di donne.

La torre, dissotterrata nel cuore di Città del Messico, era composta da teschi di donne e bambini. Il ritrovamento pone nuove domande inerenti la cultura dei sacrifici di questa civiltà precolombiana.

Infatti, i ricercatori si aspettavano di trovare solo crani di giovani uomini.

Combattenti sconfitti e catturati, le cui teste erano usate come ornamento in molte culture mesoamericane.

“È qualcosa di cui non avevamo traccia, questa è veramente una novità”, scrisse Rodrigo Bolanos, antropologo biologico che aveva esaminato il materiale disseppellito.

I teschi – continua l’antropologo – sarebbero stati depositati all’interno della torre dopo l’esposizione al pubblico su uno tzompantli, un tipo d’intelaiatura di legno utilizzata proprio a tale scopo.

La struttura si trova vicino al sito di Templo Mayor, in un angolo della cappella dedicata a Huitzilopochtli: il dio azteco del Sole, della guerra e dei sacrifici umani.

  30. Hi all – I have a straight-up HTML website that I’d like to transition to Joomla. If possible, I’d like to install Joomla into a subfolder and create and test the site there, while keeping the existing site functioning until I’m ready to move it over. Is this possible?. . Thanks!.

  31. I wonder why those servers with copyrighted content stay up. I see a lot of “don’t post any US content” but they don’t care at all about content from japan.. . Is it just that Japan doesn’t care much about their copyright laws?. . It is hundreds or maybe even thousands of servers with content from Japan but they only get DMCA warnings for US material or something that got translated by a US company.. . They also often have some content on their website, like images or small archives..

  32. Did you write the article yourself or you hired someone to do it?
    I was wondering because I am a site owner too and struggle with writing new
    content all the time. Someone told me to use AI to do create articles which I am kinda considering because the output is almost
    written by human. Here is the sample content they sent me –

    Let me know if you think I should go ahead and use AI.
