"The Mystery of El Tajín
The city was built and inhabited between 800 BC and 1200 AD by a culture most likely influenced by the Olmecs, although who they were exactly, remains unknown. Some believe that they were the ancestors of the Toltecs or that they were a branch of the mighty Maya people. Some evidence suggests that the builders of El Tajín were the ancestors of the Huastec people, who still live in the state of Veracruz.

Archaeological evidence suggest that the city was wealthy and that it was the capital of a kingdom that dominated much of south-west Mexico. It straddled important trading networks and was a multi-ethnic city. "

So much more at your news site darling! I am fascinated with history and LOVED it when I was in college, but what kinda disturbed me with all of these finds is all is gone, stolen and POOF!
