Excavating a remote Maya palace in the ruined city of Uxul, archaeologists in Mexico have uncovered the ancient tomb of a young prince—and a
Even though this place has been looted in the past, they still find some untouched tomb's, where the latest contained the fossilized body of a young
man/prince and some nice ceramic drinking wessel, with some inscription.
On one cup, "there was a simple message ... in elegantly modeled hieroglyphics that read: '[This is] the cup of the young man/prince,'" team
member Nikolai Grube, an anthropologist at Germany's University of Bonn, said in a late-July statement
Another cup bears a date, which Grube and colleague Kai Delvendahl interpret to mean the year A.D. 711, giving some indication as to when the prince
lived and died..
They are hopeful they will find more tombs, and i'm looking forward to hear more.
