Megapolis of the Mayan civilization with 60,000 buildingsdiscovered in the jungles of Guatemala

Modern laser technology LiDAR allows you to remove
digital map “forest and primary
cover “to reveal what he hides behind him. Exactly
recently a whole network of unknown cities of civilization was discovered
Maya, and in general in this “megalopolis” (about 2100 square
kilometers) of the most ancient population of Central America,
as it turned out, there was a lot more of all kinds of buildings than
demonstrated archaeological excavations directly on
the earth.

In this way, researchers have found almost 60 thousand residential
houses and palaces, fortifications and roads with bridges,
terraces and fortresses, dams, irrigation reservoirs and canals,
to speak about smaller buildings that are not yet clear even
purpose. And all this “wealth” of archeology has been hidden for centuries in
impassable jungle of northern Guatemala.

Scientists have determined that a highly developed Mayan civilization in the period
the peak of its heyday (250 – 900 AD) numbered up to 15
million people, which is significantly more than in the medieval
Of England. This civilization in its development and population
was comparable to such highly developed countries as China
or ancient greece.

This is what the archaeologist at Tulan University says about all this.
Francisco Estrada-Belly:

LiDAR technology revolutionizes modern
the archeology that terrestrial services now simply do not have time for it,
for example, it will take us 100 years to dig out all this
Megapolis Maya and understand what it is. Especially since it is only
beginning, a project led by the non-profit PACUNAM Foundation
Guatemala, explored through aerial surveys so far only 16 percent
from the planned area. Over the next years, at least
at least three, it is still necessary to examine at least 14 thousand square
kilometers And that they will show – only God knows. But in any
case we live in an interesting time of “new archeology” because
we can now easily find evidence of the ancient world,
buried under dense vegetation and pitch, immersed in
the depths of the seas and so on. This is just fantastic!
