RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Researchers and archaeologists from the USA, Canada and Mexico have discovered and excavated a long-lost Mayan city. The site is known as Lacanjá Tzeltal, the name of the modern-day Mexican village in which it is located.
It was the capital of the ancient Mayan kingdom of Sak Tz’i, which means “white dog”. The city is believed to have been founded in approximately 750 BC and occupied for 1,000 years. On the site of what was once an important Mesoamerican urban centre, there is now a cattle ranch.
