Royal tomb found hidden in Maya pyramid





An international archaeology team has discovered a royal tomb hidden inside a Maya pyramid in Guatemala.

After clearing debris left by looters, project co-director Hector Escobedo of Universidad de San Carlos de Guatemala, uncovered the collapsed royal tomb last week at the Maya center of Waka, along with a student, Juan Carlos Melendez.

The tomb likely dates from 200 to 400 A.D., says project co-director David Freidel of Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
