Maya Ruler’s Tomb Uncovered at the Site of Waka in Guatemala
A Maya ruler’s tomb has been uncovered at the site of Waka in Guatemala. It is dated to 300-350 CE. This is the 7th tomb found at the site, and the oldest. A remarkable jade mask was found in the tomb representing the Maize God. There were also ceramics, jade ornaments, and a shell carved as a crocodile. Most are painted red. The tomb was re-entered after 600 CE, when the objects were probably painted.
