Here’s today’s offering, Nakum.
Nakum is a good place to see archaeologists at work since excavations are taking place on what is the Mayans ‘largest research project. Most of the excavation is taking place in the south group – the north group of buildings remains relatively unexplored y comparison. In recent years, jade artifacts have been found at Nakum, located in the Peten region. Discoveries so far also include a palace with 44 rooms, an elevated acropolis with great views of other important buildings, stelae and a central plaza. Nakum, on a major trade route, was at its peak from the eighth to 10th centuries.
