This reminds me, I need to mow the lawn

Buried in the jungles of Guatemala, excavations at Mayan ruins continue to surprise archeologists with unsuspected data.

A team of U.S. and Guatemalan archeologists says it has discovered important Mayan monuments covered with texts from the ceremonial ball court at the Cancuen palace in northern Guatemala.

Cancuen, one of the largest Mayan palaces found so far, was built between 765 and 790 A.D. by King Taj Chan Ahk. It is located along the banks of the Passion River, about 200 kilometers (120 miles) north of the Guatemalan capital.

They've been exploring those ruins for over 100 years.
