Ancient Mexican City May Have Had as Many Buildings as Manhattan Has Today

In Mexico, a remarkable discovery was made that took the globe by storm. An ancient civilisation lived in this location, according to the archaeologist team conducting the digs, and the metropolis may have had as many buildings as modern-day Manhattan.

The finding was uncovered west of Mexico City, near the metropolis of Morelia, where an old city dating back to 900 AD appears to be located.

It was initially inhabited by the Purepecha culture. They are well-known for being the Aztecs’ adversaries.

The city was initially built on thousands of years old lava flow and covered an area of more than 16 square miles.

Using Light Detection and Ranging scanning, the team was able to determine how many structures existed in the city in the first place, as well as how huge they could have been.

The data were quickly delivered to them, and they were astounded, to say the least, to learn that over 40,000 buildings may have been constructed here in ancient times.

The city of Angamuco was discovered 11 years ago in 2007, but no one expected it to be as large or modern as it was.
