Aztec dogs - level 1

Experts in Mexico find remains of 12 Aztec dogs. The dogs are around 500 years old.

The place is probably a dog cemetery. It is very old. It can be the oldest dog cemetery in the world.

Dogs were special to the Aztecs. Dogs were buried with people. They showed dead people the way after death. Dogs also protected buildings. People found dogs under pyramids.

Experts want more information about the cemetery. They will continue to work.

Difficult words: remains (bones and pieces of bodies), Aztec (a group of people who lived in Mexico a long time ago), cemetery (place for dead people or animals), bury (put underground).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
