Archeologists in the Templo Mayor project have uncovered the remains of a 8 to 10 year old boy at the Temple Mayor. He was sacrificed to the Aztec god of war, Huitzilopochtli, in the late 15th century. He was found with body adornments and Huitzilopochtli symbols. The site is called Offering 176, and it was found under stone slabs near the Temple Mayor.
Archeologists studying the effect of the most recent earthquakes on the Teopanzolco in Cuernavaca have discovered an older temple inside that was dedicated to Tlaloc.
