New Structures Found In El Salvador’s San Andrés Archaeological Complex
Japanese and Salvadorean archaeologists have uncovered a staircase in a pyramidal structure called La Campana. They also uncovered a glass and bowl with animal drawings inside seven pieces of smooth slate placed vertically and in a circle. The structure is darted to 535 CE. Two pieces of jade decorated with two snake heads with their jaws open and tongues forked were also found.
The San Andres Complex is a large site with a monumental area dating to 600-900 CE, with an acropolis, several pyramids and other structures.
