Mystery cave under Mexican pyramid

Archaeologists are currently excavating a cave under the Pyramid of the Sun at Teotihuacan outside of Mexico city.
The cave was originally found 30 years ago, but was closed up almost immediately, and the archaeologist who discovered died shortly afterward.
"We think it had a ritual purpose. Offerings were placed at the very end of the tunnel as part of the pyramid's construction process," Mexican archaeologist Alejandro Sarabia told Reuters.
"We want to find out why the Teotihuacan people sealed it and when," he said. 12 Tzec 11 Muluc
