Not far from the capital of Mexico are the ruins of the ancient city, which is already more than three thousand years — the city of Teotihuacan. Once upon a time in this area has developed the Aztec civilization. This finding is surprising because in Teotihuacan have streets, buildings, but completely lacks any traces of human presence.
The main feature of Teotihuacan are located on its territory of the giant pyramids. Struck by the fact that all the pyramids turned to one side of the world, have a perfect face, and the main thing is that their position is fully consistent with the location of the planets in our solar system.
Scientists measuring the distance between the pyramids were amazed to find that all the distances between them are identical to the actual distance between the planets of the solar system, but in the scale of 1:100 million
Researchers believe that the civilization that lived in this city was highly developed, and the destruction of the city was almost instantaneous. Learn succeeded after it was established that all the pyramids were built at one time.
Archaeologists believe that the invasion of the barbarians in one day destroy the city. But what happened to all the evidence that people lived in the city? Some researchers put forward the hypothesis that the ancient people had kidnapped alien civilization.
In support of this version they show well-preserved remains discovered at the foot of one of the pyramids. Remains belong to at least outwardly and substantially similar to the child, but having a huge head and a tail. This is not all versions, but the right answer, perhaps will actively developing in Teotihuacan excavation reports wordscience.org.
Attraction of Teotihuacan in Mexico. Teotihuacan (ast. Teotihuacan — a city where men become gods) — a ghost town, located 50 kilometers north-east of Mexico City in the municipality of San Juan Teotihuacan.
Modern scholars believe that the area of this ancient settlement was 26-28 square meters. km, and the population — about 200 thousand people. It is the oldest city in the western hemisphere, its age — about two thousand years.
Teotihuacan — later name.
Teotihuacan has become the regional center in 2. n. e. due to the fact that the old center, Cuicuilco, was abandoned after the eruption, and its inhabitants moved to Teotihuacan.
Proper network of streets intersecting at right angles to the central avenue of the city, suggests that Teotihuacan developed a carefully thought-out plan. Around the center are located close to each other adobe homes of ordinary citizens, form separate areas of the city, with narrow streets and blind walls of houses. All the houses were one-story, flat roofs and no windows. The only source of light and air were the door, be sure to face the inner open courtyard.
In the era of its height (250-600 years. BC. E.) Teotihuacan had a significant cultural impact on many areas of Mesoamerica. Teotihuacan pottery and figurines found from northern Mexico to the mountains of Guatemala and from the Pacific coast to the Gulf of Mexico. In the heyday of his power Teotihuacán controlled the central highlands of Mexico and has been in contact with the centers of neighboring civilizations — Oaxaca, Monte Alban and the city-states of the Maya (Tikal).
