NEWS: The Discovery of Chactun, Campeche

Written by webmaster on %A %B %e%q, %Y. Posted in Attractions

INAH (Mexico’s Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia) has posted video footage of the newly discovered site of Chactun, Campeche. The ruins were located and surveyed this season by archaeologist Ivan Sprajc and his colleagues. It looks like a fascinating place with large structures and inscribed monuments, one of which mentions a Late Classic ruler by the name of K’inich Bahlam. Ivan and Octavio Esparza are featured in the video, explaining the significance of the discoveries.

A big congratulations to Ivan, Octavio and everyone involved. I’m sure many can’t wait to hear more about the find.

UPDATE: INAH has also released a news item on the discovery on their official website, as well as a nice photo gallery showing some of the monuments.
