Two Ancient Cities Discovered in the Mexican Jungle



A team of archaeologists have found a long lost Mayan city in the rainforests of eastern Mexico. Between 600 and 900 AD as many as 40,000 people lived in Chactun which was made up of 15 pyramids, various plazas, homes, ball courts and offices for the elite members of society.

Archaeologists found the city completely covered in jungle growth and vegetation. The Mayan empire extended from southern Mexico into Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. It is fascinating to see how in 2014 there are still undiscovered worlds on this earth all taken back by mother nature.
