2,500 Year Old Burials Unearthed In Quelepa, El Salvador
Archaeologists in El Salvador unearthed the remains of skeletons dating back to 500 BCE at the site of Quelepa in El Salvador. Four pottery pieces and a metate were buried in the tomb. The site is in eastern El Salvador, the region of the ancient Lenca people who lived in the region from 1,200-400 BCE. They had their own language and pottery styles distinct from the Maya in west El Salvador.
