Aztec HMFIC Tomb Found

MSNBC.com has a piece about an Aztec crypt being found. I would've thought there would be many of these known since we have found all sorts of tombs from other civilizations. But it seems that the Spaniards built their colonies right on top of all the cool stuff. Since those buildings have historical significance themselves, we can't just go digging through them. An earthquake tore one up bad enough that it had to be demolished, underneath it they found a door. You can read the rest in the article and have fun trying to pronounce the names: Ahuizotl, Cuauhtemoc, and Tlaltecuhtli.
