Archaeologists find ancient dog burial site under Mexico City apartment building
Article from Fox News:

Archaeologists on Friday announced the discovery of “an exceptional” old burial site under an apartment building in Mexico City containing the remains of 12 dogs, animals that had a major religious and symbolic significance to the Aztec peoples of central Mexico.

Previously, the remains of dogs have been found accompanying human remains or as part of offerings, experts with Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History, or INAH, said in a statement. But this is the first time a group of dogs has been found buried together at one site.

‘This is definitely a special finding because of the number of dogs and because we have found no connection to a building or with the deceased.’

The dogs were buried at around the same time in a small pit between 1350 a 1520 A.D., the heyday of the Aztec empire.
