    Archaeologists discover remains of vast Mayan palace in Mexico

    Archaeologists in Mexico have uncovered the remains of a vast Mayan palace over 1,000 years old in an ancient city about 100 miles west of the tourist hotspot of Cancún.

    The building in Kulubá is 55 metres long, 15 metres wide and six metres high, and appears to have been made up of six rooms, said Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History.

    1000 years old. That is a long time. In terms of age we have a C13th castle and Abbey near here. Both are in ruins. Offas Dyke dates from the 700s but is basically just a ditch running alongside an earth mound. How did these indigenous people manage to build these things without the advantage of being white ?

    They didn't need to be white to accomplish that. All they had to do was be smart enough to hire a bunch of Mexicans to do it.

    There continues to be "discoveries" of ancient times in a lot of places- to me that says the world is a lot older than people have been led to believe- I started reading the book, 1491, about ancient South America but it moved too slow to keep my attention so I didn't finish it- but, what I did read says there are is a lot to be "discovered" down there-

    I am sure all the workers were paid a fair wage with full Healthcare and benefits so they could provide a stable environment for their families. :rolleyes:

    It was slaves and sacrifice to the gods. Amazing what the elite could build with fear and intimidation and an endless supply of indentured labor.
