Teotihuacan, Pyramid of the Moon, 1982. Teotihuacan was the largest city in Pre-Columbian America, and its remains occupy an enormous archaeological site northeast of Mexico City. It was built by a mysterious civilization predating the Aztecs. The Pyramid of the Moon was probably completed around AD 250 and was apparently the ceremonial center of the city. Burials have been excavated in the Pyramid, including a vault containing 12 human sacrificial victims together with many animal skeletons.
