Aztec Calendar Stone
One of the great archeological artifacts of all time is the Aztec Calendar Stone (also known as the Aztec Stone of the Sun) currently on display in the National Museum of Anthology and History in Chapultepec Park, Mexico City. The calendar is massive stone with a 12’ diameter believed to have been carved in the middle of the 1400’s. The stone describes a 365 day calendar year (same as ours!) and a 260 day ritual cycle. A replica cast from the original is on display in El Paso, TX.
