A recently discovered circular structure made of red volcanic rock with a tree trunk in its center sits exposed at the archaeological site Templo Mayor in Mexico City. Archaeologists found 50 skulls at the site along with this circular structure, which they believe may have been a sacred tree.
Five of 50 skulls discovered by Mexican archaeologists were buried under a sacrificial stone and have holes on both sides of the head, evidence they were hung on a skull rack, the scientists said.
