Scientists find prehistoric remains in Mexico

Scientists announced the discovery of the remains of 10 people, one dating back to 1,300 BCE, providing evidence of prehispanic cultures in Mexico City's sprawling Chapultepec Park. The scientists said that they uncovered eight bodies last year near the park's Chapultepec Castle. Two other bodies were discovered in separate places, one in 2000 and the other a few weeks ago, in the park's forest. It was unclear how they died.  Archaeologist Guadalupe Espinosa said the discoveries were part of a project sponsored by the National Museum of History/Chapultepec Castle that has been investigating prehispanic cultures in the park.
