A recent expedition deep into the rainforest of Honduras has made a remarkable discovery, a mysterious lost city belonging to an unknown culture.
Christopher Fisher, an archaeologist from Colorado State University, led the expedition which had hoped to find the legendary La Ciudad Blanca, or White City, a settlement said to have contained incredible wealth. It has been claimed that the White City is simply a mythical construct; nevertheless, many have tried to find it.
Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés stated he had received ‘trustworthy’ information on a region of extreme wealth in Honduras, one with many towns and villages, but he never located such settlements. In the 1920s and 1930s, many explorers and adventurers attempted to find the White City and its immense riches.
