Entre el pasado y la modernidad

Como suele ocurrir en México y el Mundo, en muchas ocasiones se han hecho hallazgos arqueólogos de manera accidental, ya que las necesidades del ser humano se mantienen en aumento y se siguen haciendo más excavaciones para nuevas construcciones. Esta enorme plataforma se descubrió en 1960 durante la ampliación de la Avenida Eje Central, pero sólo se logró rescatarla de manera parcial. No obstante, gracias a los arqueólogos Francisco González Rul, Eduardo Matos y Braulio García ahora podemos observar al sur los restos de un altar circular, mismo que quizá fue parte del templo dedicado a Quetzalcóatl; al norte se encuentran los restos de un altar central de forma rectangular frente al adoratorio dedicado a Tláloc del mismo Templo Mayor. El pasado no está peleado con el presente, ni pretende frenar el futuro. Por ello es necesario conciliar el desarrollo de infraestructura con la investigación y conservación de nuestro patrimonio. Pie de dibujo:El Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia supervisa e investiga toda obra de infraestructura que se lleve a cabo en los alrededores de esta Zona ArqueológicaEnglish:As it usually occurs in Mexico and the world, many discoveries have been made accidentally, due to the fact of the growth in human necessity to keep building new structures. This enormous platform was discovered in 1960 during the expansion of the avenue Eje Central, but was only managed to be preserved partially. Nevertheless, thanks to the archeologist Francisco González Rul, Eduardo Matos and Braulio García we can now observe a circular altar that is to the south, same one that might have belonged to the temple dedicated to Quetzalcóatl; to the north you can see a central altar in a rectangular shape in front of the worship place dedicated to Tláloc of the Templo Mayor. The past is not in conflict with the present, nor does it seek to hinder the future. Therefore, it is necessary to combine infrastructure development with research and conversation of our heritage. English translation of the caption:The National Institute of Anthropology and History supervises and investigates each and every work of infrastructure that is carried out in the area of this Archaeological Zone.
