New Maya finds in Guatemala
Tulane and Del Valle University archaeologists have uncovered more artifacts at El Achiotal in Guatemala. A six foot tall stucco mask was found in the largest pyramid dated at 100 BCE at the site. It still has its polychrome decoration depicting the Bird Deity. Half of the pyramid is still to be excavated.
The same archaeologists, working at Holmul in Guatemala, have excavated two tombs untouched by looters with pottery, a jade jewel with the name of a distant Maya ruler.
