Maya unveiled

An archaeologist seeking refuge from hungry mosquitoes in the Guatemalan rain forest has solved the 45-year-old mystery of the location of Site Q. The ancient city has been the source of exquisite, looted Mayan hieroglyphs that started to appear around the world in the 1960s. This discovery may fill in gaps in Maya history and clarify the complex political and social roles of rival city-states during a period of war and strife in the seventh Century Central America. Site Q has been identified as "La Corona", a small cluster of ruins in the remote Peten region of northern Guatemala.
