The footage you are about to see features tunnels that date back more than 3000 years, full of skeletons of people who follow ancient and strange rituals.
Researchers discover large underground tunnels
The tunnels were discovered by a group of researchers in a temple in the Andean region of Peru, in Ancash. Archaeologists discovered an underground labyrinth of galleries.
However, shortly after that, they ran into a tunnel and could not get through it.
They came up with new technology and a new type of robot that was able to find ceramic fragments, many tools, and surprisingly, human skeletons.
Hidden tunnel in the temple can show the underground world
Archaeologists have found a hidden underground tunnel under the great pyramid El Castillo in Chichen Itza.
Now the tunnel will be opened and it is hoped that it will lead to a large underground cave.
Now in February, Mexican archaeologists will begin to excavate the secret tunnel found under the Great Pyramid El Castillo in the ruins of Chichen Itza. The tunnel was sealed by everything judged many centuries ago, but archaeologists hope it will lead to a large, water-filled underground cave, a cenote that was an important place in Mayan culture’s religiosity, CNN writes.
Cenotes are large water-filled drainage holes that are actually the only source of freshwater in the state of Yucatan.
The robot was equipped with a camera, so he managed to take pictures and record everything he saw.
At the same time, it turned out that the tunnel was longer and larger than expected.
Three people were found in one of the galleries. A small child, a teenager and another young person of no more than 30 years of age.
According to theories and speculations, the tunnels and galleries were used by ancient priests in order to carry out macabre and sinister old drug rituals, manipulation of light and noise.
So according to this, the people found in the tunnels, more likely than not, were victims of this type of ritual. In fact, one of the corpses was found with his face on the ground.
This discovery is one of the most amazing archaeological discoveries of the last 50 years.

Sacrificed people in the gullies
Maya civilization could never have survived without these and they soon became a mythical part of the spiritual world of culture. It was valued so highly that the Mayans used the gutter holes for human sacrifice by throwing people down the holes.
Chichen Itza has four visible cenotes, but two years ago, Mexican scientist Rene Chavez discovered that there was a secret, covered cenote under the El Castillo pyramid.
The pyramid is a temple dedicated to the serpent god Kukulcan and, with its height of 24 meters, is one of the most well-known buildings in Chichen Itza.
Chichen Itza was one of the largest Mayan cities and it was probably one of the mythical big cities or Tollans that it is referred to in later Mesoamerican literature. The city may have had the most diverse population of the Mayan world, a factor that could have contributed to the various architectural styles of the place.
The ruins of Chichen Itza are federal property, and the site’s stewardship is maintained by the Mexico Institute of National Anthropology and History (National Institute of Anthropology and History). The land under the monument had been privately owned until March 29, 2010, when it was purchased by the state of Yucatán.
Aztec architecture is a late form of Mesoamerican architecture developed by Aztec civilization. Much of what is known about it comes from structures that are still standing. These structures have survived for centuries due to the strong materials used and the skill of the builders.
Aztec cities often competed to build the largest temples of the Aztec Empire. Thus, they simply built over the old structure instead of demolishing an old temple and building a new one in the same place. Some temples have been found to have at least four or five layers. The houses were uniform in most of the empire, only varying in size and decoration. The houses were built with logs and were not separated, resulting in a large room.
