Teotihuacan (6)

Source: WTL© digitized analogue photograph taken on site.
Notes: Here is another photo looking directly down the Calzada de los Muertos (Avenue of the Dead) taken from the Pirámide de la Luna (Moon Pyramid) using a telephoto lens. The monumental and symetrical nature of Teotihuacan is more apparent in this photo than in the last one.
Humanities Question: (A) How do you imagine the Spanish conquistadors first felt when they encountered the small pyramids along this avenue covered with about 20,000 human skulls? Remember that by the time the conquistadors had arrived this site had been abandoned for several centuries and weather had erased most of the blood and polychrome that once covered them. But the skulls were almost fully intact.
