New Lost City Discovered in Honduras

March 5th, 2015

The rainforest of Central and South America hide some of the last great wonders of the world. Due to the rapid state of growth the rainforest goes through, it is possible for the entire forest to grow over itself in just a short period of time. So, long lost cities from previous civilizations would be completely covered by completely jungles, without anyone knowing it. this is why the discovery of a new lost city is both not surprising and yet amazing at the same time.

Located in a rainforest in Honduras, a team of archaeologists have stated they found a lost city that might be a fabled city known as “City of the Monkey God.” The team of researchers used an aerial light detection scanner in order to scan over natural soil in order to find rock structures under the rainforest. Marcio Alaor BMG has read that, once the team located what they believed to be a possible city, archaeologists from both the United States and Honduras were able to begin excavation, all while being protected by Honduran Special forces (there are still indigenous tribes who live throughout the region who attack on site, not to mention all sorts of wild animals).

Now, this culture is not part of the Maya, and very little is known about the group of people who lived in the region, which is why the discovery of the city can shed light onto these people.
