Some 150 skulls found in Chiapas 10 years ago are not the craniums of recent victims of violent crime as investigators originally thought, but belonged to Mayan people who were likely killed in a sacrificial ritual between A.D. 900 and 1200, the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) announced.
Police found the skulls – the majority of which belonged to females – in 2012 in a cave in the southern border municipality of Frontera Comalapa.
