Archaeologists hunting for a sacred well beneath the ancient Maya city of Chichén Itzá on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula have accidentally discovered a trove of more than 150 ritual objects—untouched for more than a thousand years—in a series of cave chambers that may hold clues to the rise and fall of the ancient Maya.
The discovery of the cave system, known as Balamku or “Jaguar God,” was announced by Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) in a press conference held today in Mexico City.
Maya ritual cave ‘untouched’ for 1,000 years stuns archaeologists
UFOmania – The truth is out there

A team of scientists found hundreds of archaeological objects in an underground cave near the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza that would help scientists “rewrite history of Chichen Itza.”
Farmers discovered the cave in 1966. An archaeologist named Víctor Segovia Pinto came to the cave and made a report about there being an abundance of artifacts there. Balamku was never excavated, Segovia told the farmers to seal the cave. Then all records of the cave disappeared and it was forgotten.
Was something covered-up at the site? It is possible that Segovia returned to the cave and removed items for some reason. It is good the cave has been rediscovered, but I have a bad feeling important items may no longer be there.
A most interesting story. Fascinating timeline. High strangeness.
