Archaeologists discover an ancient Mayan sculpture that may shed light on the mysterious civilization that once dominated Central America.

The frieze was found at a Mayan pyramid in the pre-Columbian archaeological site of Holmul, located in the department of Peten to the north of Guatemala City in June. The spectacular stucco sculpture, richly decorated with images of gods and Mayan rulers, is 26-feet long and six feet wide and was found in a 65-foot high Mayan pyramid dating back to the year 600 AD which was built over it in the 8th Century.
