"It corroborates the information of the existence of a big space at the end of the passage, it appears to be three chambers. There is a lot of rubble which is part of the reason why the team could not continue (with exploration). We are now below the pyramid."

    A robot has discovered three ancient chambers at the last stretch of unexplored tunnel at Mexico's famed Teotihuacan archaeological site on Monday (April 22), the first robotic discovery of its kind in the Latin American country.

  Named Tlaloc II after the Aztec god of rain, the robot was first lowered into the depths of the 2,000-year-old tunnel under the Quetzalcoatl Temple to check if it was safe for human entry. After months of exploration, the remote-controlled vehicle has relayed back video images to researchers of what appears to be three ancient chambers located under the Mesoamerican city's pyramid.

  The investigation's immediate goal is to find a tomb where the city's former rulers are thought to be buried. Although one of Mexico's most famous pre-Hispanic sites, Teotihuacan is still shrouded in mystery with little known of the social structure and monarch of the grand Aztec city.

  Three remote-controlled robots are expected to continue probing the tunnel as researchers clear rubble in the ancient Aztec corridor. The find is particularly significant as the tunnel is situated under Quetzalcoatl Temple, thought to be a political centre of Teotihuacan.
