Archaeologists discover cool new Mayan temple7/23/2012
The forests of Guatemala have unearthed a dream come true for archaeologists and lovers of Pre-Columbian history: A Mayan temple with well-preserved carvings of giant faces. The 1,600-year-old Temple of the Night Sun, which sits atop a pyramid tomb in what was the El Zotz kingdom, has dazzled archaeologists, who began digging it up three years ago and have just now announced their discovery. The finding is special in part because, unlike many buildings that Mayan workers smashed before building a new one, this one was preserved with painstaking detail. Experts say the faces are especially important because they could help verify theories about how the Mayan people viewed their sun god. [Source]
