In case it's of interest, following a fascinating lecture by Dr. Leonardo
López Lujan at the British Museum last month, we have uploaded an
illustrated feature on the new discovery here -


We're currently preparing a similar article on the earlier discovery (in
2005) of the Aztec stone monolith in the shape of a giant barrel cactus
found by Leonardo and colleagues under a manhole cover in front of the
Librería Porrúa.

Good wishes,
