New Olmec Monuments Found in Guatemala

Two large Olmec carved monuments have been found at the Tak’Alik Ab’aj site in Guatemala. The exact location of the find is being kept under wraps to discourage looters. They are dated at 850-300 BCE. The first has a carved head and ruler symbols, and are related to “Grandfather,” an important ancestor who descended from heaven. The second monument weighs five tons and has many ritualistic symbols, including the Kan Cross.

Archaeology News Network and Ancient Origins have the report here with many photos;
