Archaeologists have discovered a tomb more than 1,000 years old in the western state of Michoacan, authorities said.

The find of the funeral chamber, in which are buried the remains of an unidentified person along with 19,000 beads of green stone and shell, is one of the most outstanding results of the Michoacan Special Project for archaeological research and preservation, Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History, or INAH, said in a communique.

INAH is carrying out the project in the archaeological zones of Tzintzuntzan, Ihuatzio, Tres Cerritos, Huandacareo and Tingambato.

According to INAH experts, the complexity of the chamber's architecture and the wealth interred within it, all of which date from the Classical period from 200 to 900 A.D., indicate that it contains the remains of a high-ranking personage.
