Cortes was right.

From The Daily Mail:
A child sacrifice site at the foot of an ancient temple in a lost Aztec city has been unearthed by archaeologists.

The discovery was made at the foot of the ancient Templo Mayor temple, which was found in the heart of the Aztec city of Tenochtitlan.

The young child is believed to have been sacrificed for the Aztec god of war Huitzilopochtli during the late fifteenth century.


Child sacrifice seems to have been a relatively common occurrence in the cultures of ancient south and central America.

Aztecs undertook human sacrifices, including children, as they believed this would bring the rains their crops needed to grow.

The discovery comes 12 years after the location of the first child sacrifice site at the archaeological site, now in the centre of the Mexican capital, Mexico City.

The child's bones were reportedly found along with body adornments and symbols characteristic of Huitzilopochtli.
Really salt of the earth people, these Aztecs.

I can't wait for Science Magazine's Lizzie Wade to explain how this wasn't evil!
