THIS is what happens when you don't pay employees. They just spackle over the ruins.

"Looks good to me."

"Me, too."

Okay, all Archaeologists roll a 1d20 for a skill check and tell me your Constitution.

Ms Koniecza says it was not unusual for the Tlahuica to build on top of older structures.

IN an earthquake zone? That is daft.

Easy fix, just get to the SHRINE of the Silver Monkey, then assemble the statue.

Interestingly enough, the Mexico City subway had to be rerouted at several places because of ruins uncovered by digging. Some of them they left exposed and you can see them at certain stations.
