MEXICO CITY (AP) - Archaeologists say they have turned up at least 130 skulls of human sacrifice victims in a field in central Mexico, one of the first times that such a large accumulation of severed heads has been found outside of a major pyramid or temple complex in Mexico.

Morehart said this week he was startled to see such a large number of skulls at was a small shrine between 660 and 860 A.D., and is today no more than a bump in a farmers’ field.
