New giant monolith discovered in Mexico
A group of archaeologists have found a series of monoliths at one of Mexico City's main Aztec ruins, one of which may be a depiction of Tlaloc, the Aztec god of rain.

The Great Temple is part of the pre-Hispanic city called Tenochtitlan, which archaeologists established dates back to the mid 1400's.

Archaeologist Gabino Lopez Arenas said on Tuesday that a team of researchers was working in the area when they discovered the carved figures.

Much more from National Geographic.

And the IHT has something on another monolith, which seems more interesting.
