Archaeologists discover remains of vast Mayan palace in Mexico #Archeology #Mayan @NathOnSecurity
Nathan on Twitter points out this Guardian article on a new Mayan palace discovered just west of Cancùn, Mexico. The building complex is estimated to be more than 1,000 years old.
Archaeologists in Mexico have uncovered the remains of a vast Mayan palace over 1,000 years old in an ancient city about 100 miles west of the tourist hotspot of Cancún.
The building in Kulubá is 55 metres long, 15 metres wide and six metres high, and appears to have been made up of six rooms, said Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History.
It is part of a larger complex that also includes two residential rooms, an altar and a large round oven. Archaeologists have also uncovered remains from a burial site, and hope forensic analysis of the bones could provide more clues about Kulubá’s Mayan inhabitants.
