Given that so much of Mexico’s history is drenched in blood, through battle or religious sacrifice, the series with the weirdest animated reconstructions around goes to town on the treasures held in the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City.
Every chance they get, the animators spatter the screen with gouts of red and decapitations. In between, we hear about the strange Tlahuicole sacrificial stone and learn why Mexico City, built on a lake, is sinking faster than Venice.
A behind-the-scenes look at the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City, which houses relics from the country's history, including a crystal skull and an Aztec canoe.
