Researcher and An archaeologist reports finding ‘large quantities’ of liquid mercury under ruins of Teotihuacan, in a discovery that could shed light on the identity of the city’s mysterious leaders.
Mexican researcher Sergio Gómez announced on Friday that he had discovered “large quantities” of liquid mercury in a chamber below the Pyramid of the Feathered Serpent, the third largest pyramid of Teotihuacan, the ruined city in central Mexico.
The finding could suggest the existence of a king’s tomb or a ritual chamber far below one of the most ancient cities of the Americas.
According to Philip Ball the burial chamber of China’s first emperor (Mausoleum of Qin Shi Huang) contains rivers and a lake of shimmering mercury, what is adding to the mystery and makes the world wide ancient culture theory stronger.

In addition there are hundreds of mysterious spheres lie beneath the Temple of the Feathered Serpent, an ancient six-level step pyramid just 30 miles from Mexico City.
The enigmatic spheres were found during an archaeological dig using a camera-equipped robot at one of the most important buildings in the pre-Hispanic city of Teotihuacan.
