The Largest Maya Tomb Ever Found in Belize

The largest tomb of a Maya ruler ever found in Belize has been uncovered at Xunantunich. Archaeologists have found the skeletal remains of the ruler, a male between 25-30 years of age. Buried with him are the remains of a deer or jaguar, ceramics and jade stones. Archaeologists have been working at Xunantunich for a century and this is the first tomb they have ever found there.
