First a Persian army (not Iranian ) and now a Mayan pyramid. It is amazing what you can find when you say up late and look.

Goodnight.

Interesting video, but it’s a shame that CNN ruined it with those obtrusive and constantly changing boxes of crap at the bottom of the screen.

The discovery suggests that the saga, known as the Popol Vuh, was a centerpiece of Maya beliefs for well more than a millennium and stands as one of the world's enduring religious stories.

From the TITLE it would seem that this just was found, but the railings and fences and steps seen look like they’ve been there quite a while...
