Burial Chamber -
A funerary complex, consisting of three burial chambers, has been discovered at the pre-Hispanic site of Atzompa in Oaxaca, Mexico. The discovery of the complex, which is more than 1,100 years old, is important because it was located inside a building designed exclusively to house a series of tombs, which are placed vertically, one above another, not underground.
