Archaeologists have discovered a treasure trove of Mayan artifacts

(ORDO NEWS) — Researchers at the University of California San Diego have discovered thousands of Mayan artifacts in the Vista Alegre and Conil areas on the north coast of the Yucat√°n Peninsula.

According to scientists, Vista Alegre was once a bustling trading port. Up to 40 platforms were found in this area, which served as the foundation for buildings.

The largest of them is a pyramidal structure about 13 meters high and probably served as a temple or an observation deck for observing the sea.

The researchers also found food remains that speak to the diet of the locals, and tens of thousands of artifacts.

So, a lot of pottery and hundreds of pieces of obsidian were found. This indicates that the ancient Maya were involved in maritime trade with other peoples.
