Update to the Aztec burial site

From commenter Macon, that the more interesting aspect to this story is not the find itself, but the way in which the Aztecs were buried.  The burial site shows characteristics of both an Aztec and Christian burial.

“As divided as the two groups were during this period, the fact that at least some had found a middle ground, at least in death, is astonishing and raises a wealth of questions,” he wrote.  And it’s true. 

While many are theorizing as to when and how this happened, no one seems to be talking about the deliberate nature to which they were buried.  Or possibly the melding of cultures that took place. 

A bit more can be read here on the matter.
