A well-preserved tomb of an ancient Mayan king has been discovered in Guatemala by a team of archaeologists led by Brown University's Stephen Houston. The tomb is packed with carvings, ceramics, textiles, and the bones of six children, who may have been sacrificed at the time of the king's death.

This is really cool!

Theres not a whole lot of substance I can add to this, but the article is really interesting and you should check it out!

Very cool! I have found another photo here. Found a video with Stephan Houston and the work he does. Pretty neat stuff.

Nice find. Although sometimes anthropologists tend to jump to conclusions on groupings of bones, or ever artifacts. I like to look at the findings for myself, not take someones biased perspective on why things were where.

I can't believe they finally found this ,this so interesting

it looks like they have all sorts of artifacts that they have no examples of in this state of preservation

I can't wait to see more

What an amazing find,always a thrill seeing treasures buried for so many years come to light,artifacts not touched for hundreds of years.
what a dream job that must be,doing your own research then going out in the field looking for treasures.
hopefully they'll find more.
