Archeologists find rare Maya panels in Guatemala

GUATEMALA CITY (Reuters) - Archeologists have uncovered carved stucco panels depicting cosmic monsters, gods and serpents in Guatemala's northern jungle that are the oldest known depictions of a famous Mayan creation myth.

The newly discovered panels, both 26 feet long and stacked on top of each other, were created around 300 BC and show scenes from the core Mayan mythology, the Popol Vuh.

I just love Maya history, this new find is one of the greatest, not a lot of Mayan writings exist, what little there is sparks so much speculation already, leading us to 2012. These newest finds go to the core of Mayan history and beliefs, the Popol Vuh. A religious story contianed in these panels chronicles the creation of the world.

Thanks, I did a search first, I don't know why it didn't show up


edit to add: I think it is because the other article previously posted is relating the story to UFO's and Aliens.
