INAH offical video: Newly discovered Maya town in a “raw” state
This film is in Spanish, but contains fascinating views of recently discovered ruins in southeastern Campeche State, Mexico. You will notice how similar the ruins look to what we are discovering in the mountains of Georgia, Alabama and NW South Carolina. The archaeological work is being sponsored by the Institutio de Antropologia E Historia de Mexico and the National Geographic Society (USA). The name of this town, when translated into English, is “Red Rock.”
Also, the archaeologist in the video will show you the LIDAR image of the site, which helped him find the buildings. The GIS Department of the White County, GA government used the same LIDAR program to help us find lost ruins in the Nacoochee Valley.
In the photograph at the top of this article, you see Mexican masons restoring a wall in a nearby Maya town, under the supervision of a Historic Preservation Architect. The final product of their work, will be what the tourists see.
When viewing the video, be on the look out for this glyph, engraved on a building stone:
The same symbol can be found on the art of Etowah Mounds in Northwest Georgia!
