    Laser Scans Reveal Maya "Megalopolis" Below Guatemalan Jungle

    The results suggest that Central America supported an advanced civilization that was, at its peak some 1,200 years ago, more comparable to sophisticated cultures such as ancient Greece or China than to the scattered and sparsely populated city states that ground-based research had long suggested.

    In addition to hundreds of previously unknown structures, the LiDAR images show raised highways connecting urban centers and quarries. Complex irrigation and terracing systems supported intensive agriculture capable of feeding masses of workers who dramatically reshaped the landscape.

    • @robo It will probably never be fully excavated. There are similar cities / structures in Belize that have been temporarily excavated and then reburied to..garbage
