Archeologists in Mexico have revealed a 12.4 ton stone slab, 46 feet in surface area of the earth god Tlaltecuhtli. The idol was partially uncovered earlier this month in what is now Mexico City. At the time of the Aztecs, the area was known as Zocalo square and was used for worship by the Aztecs. Archeologists are saying that the idol could be the key to a hidden temple located under the ground of Mexico City. After discovering the idol and determining what it might’ve been used for, researchers are calling the discovery not only one of the most significant finds in decades but also one of the greatest archeological finds in the history of the country.
