A large city known as Chactún, or Red Stone has been discovered in the juggles of Mexico’s Central Lowlands. It was an area once used by loggers, but only recently explored by archaeologists equipped with aerial photographs and images created with LIDAR. The size of the city and it’s pyramids, palaces, ball courts, and plazas suggest that it was a long-term seat of government some 1,400 years ago. Ivan Sprajc, a  Slovenian archaeologist argues, “It is one of the largest sites in the central Lowlands, comparable in it’s extent and the magnitude of it’s buildings with Becan, Nadzcaan, and El Palmar in Campeche.” The image found carved on one of the stelae unearthed was the name of a ruler known as K’inich B’ahlam.

The archaeologists hope that the discovery will help them understand relationships between other nearby cities. I wonder what else is waiting to be found there. This article would make anyone want to go out with a great relic metal detector and see what else is out there.
