December 9, 2011 - Right after years of hosting genuine archaeological research inside of its 365 acre nature reserve and by means of its All-natural History Centre, Chaa Creek
Maya research coordinators stated they are astounded by the revelations encompassing reports of the so-known as Comalcalco
brick learned in Mexico.
Some of the startling finds could reveal an historic Roman presence in the region 1000's of years ahead of Columbus's arrival, in accordance to scientists at the Comalcalco archaeological site. Â
â€œWhen we first observed information
that another historic Maya reference to 2012 had been discovered by the Mexican National Institute of Anthropology and Background, we commenced searching for each and every bit of data we could locate, but with the watchful skepticism you implement to anything at all associated with 2012,â€ Chaa Creek's Maya Tunkul project coordinator Larry Waight stated today November 30 2011. Â
â€œWhile the affiliation to December 21 2012 is below debate, we're astounded by other details coming from the site. Possibly, this is one of the greatest finds of the century,â€ he additional.
Actually since the Seattle Times ran an write-up in November 2011 about a 2012 reference found at the Comalcalco Maya archaeological site in Mexico's Tabasco
state, the world wide web has been jogging scorching with stories and speculation about the implications of the find. As there is only one other specific prediction as to December 21 2012 from the ancient Maya â€“ the nicely-known and controversial Tortuguero stela 6, the Comalcalco discover galvanised 2012 doomsday theorists. Â
Serious Maya scholars such as David Stuart, a specialist in Maya epigraphy at the College of Texas at Austin, remained skeptical, with Mr Stuart quoted by the Associated Press as stating that, â€œSome have proposed it as another reference to 2012, but I continue being fairly unconvinced.â€ Â
Nonetheless, the Comalcalco site has yielded proof that does have the possible to stand heritage as we know it on its head.
The Comalcalco site is special in a lot of methods, not the minimum in that it is built of hundreds of thousands of bricks.
