Mexico:45 archaeological zones found in the works of the Mayan Train

Mexico City, Jun 21 (Prensa Latina) The works of the Mayan Train in the Yucatan Peninsula have uncovered 45 archaeological sites that are being rehabilitated for the enjoyment of the public, a senior official reported.

The director of the National Institute of Archeology and History (INAH), Diego Prieto, gave the information during President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s daily morning press conference at the National Palace.

He specified that in the construction of the Mayan Train they have identified ceramics, pottery, 23,778 real estate structures, 373 human burials, 1,334 diverse movable goods such as metates and 775 natural features such as caves, wells, cenotes or structures for planting.

Of the total number of findings, 97,0% have been on the road, he explained.

The INAH director emphasized that they will make very important improvements, and in the controversial Section 5 of the Mayan Train, which transnational mining companies are fighting to prevent the railroad from crossing there and to continue exploiting minerals in spite of complaints of contamination and alteration of the ecosystem, he assured that there will be protection, research and archaeological salvage.

Prieto offered videos and other materials showing the archaeological salvage works and the archaeological zones improvement program in the route of the Mayan Train: which are being taken care of, studied, safeguarded and put in value, he detailed.
