An ancient Mayan King's tomb has been found


"A well-preserved tomb believed to be the final resting place of an ancient Mayan king has been discovered in Guatemala, scientists announced last week."

This tomb is 1600 years old and was discovered beneath the El Diablo pyramid on on the 29th of May. The tomb was full of textiles, ceramics etc. But the strangest of all was the bones of six children.

They also found bowls containing human teeth and fingers!

"The chamber had been so well sealed, for over 1600 years, that no air and little water had entered."
