Royal Maya Retreat Found in Guatemala

Archaeologists have found a rural luxury retreat at the site of Becujal in Guatemala. There is a luxury residence and two pyramids on the site. Inscriptions there link the complex to a Maya ruler called Great Fish-Dog Turtle. His base was five miles away. This is the first country resort ever found belonging to a Maya ruler. A sacrificed baby was found at one temple. Bejucal had two courtyards with residential rooms. A large tomb dated to 350-450 CE was found beneath one pyramid. The site has many looters tunnels too dangeroud to explore for now.
