Bowls of Human Fingers and Teeth Found in Mayan Tomb

by Karen on Jul. 20th, 2010

Archeologists have discovered an amazingly well preserved tomb in Guatemala fill of all kinds of intriguing things.

Like, of course, bowls of human fingers and teeth, small 'bells' of shell with, probably, dog canines as clappers, and what is probably a ritual knife stained with a red organic substance. As one scientist says, "it doesn't take too much imagination to think that this is blood."
