The National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) is preparing to issue an opinion that will release property of Reforma Avenue No. 159 to make way for Living Reforma, an apartment tower property of the Living SLVK company. Despite the fact that the plot could contain up to 2,000 human graves dating back to the XVIII and XIX century, the institution under the leadership of María Teresa Franco hardly excavated and recovered 10% of the material available. In four months of work 249 graves, around 131 skulls and an undefined number of skeletal remains, as well as ceramics, incensories, fragments of pottery and metal objects. Lacking both time and interest to preserve and study the national historic Heritage, in the beginning of March authorities will endorse the destruction of what could be one of the most important historic discoveries of skeleton collections.
