  • Oldest & Largest Maya Structure Discovered

    This is an amazing find. It has been cleverly hidden amid foliage all this time.



    Can you see it?

    The site, called Aguada Fénix, is about 3,000 years old, and was one of 21 ceremonial centers discovered in 2017 using aerial surveys and lidar imaging, which mapped out the subtle topographies that lay beneath the foliage and other surface-level features in the area. Of the ceremonial centers those surveys identified, Aguada Fénix is by far the most sprawling. In fact, after three years of study, researchers have determined that it’s the largest and oldest Maya structure ever found in Mexico.

    The details of the find, its dimensions, and the artifacts uncovered during its excavation were recently published in the journal Nature.
