Archaeologists Uncover Nearly Pristine Mayan Road

Archaeologists from the University of Colorado Boulder have uncovered a nearly pristine Mayan road in El Salvador. The remains were covered by volcanic ash during an eruption in 600 CE.

The road was a surprise find for archaeologists, who stated: “Until our discovery, these roads were only known from the Yucatan area in Mexico and all were built with stone linings, which generally preserved well.”

To learn more about the find, see the article on Science Daily News.
