More than 200 mammoth skeletons discovered at Mexico City airport construction site

CGTN published this video item, entitled “More than 200 mammoth skeletons discovered at Mexico City airport construction site” – below is their description.

Bones from at least 200 mammoths have been discovered at an airport construction site outside Mexico City. Archaeologists hope the site that has become “mammoth central,” the shores of an ancient lakebed that both attracted and trapped mammoths in its marshy soil, may help solve the riddle of their extinction.

Mexico is a country in the southern portion of North America. It is the most populous Spanish-speaking nation. Mexico City is its capital city and largest metropolis.

Mexico became an independent nation state after the successful Mexican War of Independence against Spain in 1821.

Mexico is a developing country, but has the world’s 15th-largest economy by nominal GDP and the 11th-largest by PPP, with the United States being its largest economic partner. Since 2006, a conflict between the government and drug trafficking syndicates has led to over 120,000 deaths.

Mexico receives a significant number of tourists every year; in 2018, it was the 6th most-visited country in the world, with 39 million international arrivals.
