An additional marker on the 100th anniversary of the investigation of the Pyramid of the Sun.
Photographer: J. Makali Bruton
Taken: June 28, 2017
Caption: An additional marker on the 100th anniversary of the investigation of the Pyramid of the Sun.
Additional Description: This additional marker is to the left (north) of the featured marker. It is slightly in error, as archaeological research was done earlier than 2010 at the Pyramid of the Sun, most prominently in 1906 by Leopoldo Batres. It is likely that this marker was placed as a way to coincide with the 2010 Mexican Independence 200th anniversary celebrations. It reads:

Pirámide del Sol
A 100 años de su investigación, conservación y apertura al publico.
Septiembre 1910-Septiembre 2010

English translation:
Pyramid of the Sun
To 100 years of its investigacion, conservation and opening to the public.
September 1910-September 2010
