New Discoveries at El Pilar Maya site

Belize, Maya

El Pilar CitadelA new article in Popular Archaeology Magazine discusses areas of the El Pilar Maya site located only a few miles from the Maya Spring Estates community.

Archaeologist Anabel Ford, who has led investigations and research at El Pilar for many years, described the discovery of highly unusual construction work hidden beneath the shroud of centuries of jungle overgrowth. Nick-named the ‘Citadel’ because of its apparent defensive construction characteristics and relative geographic isolation from the rest of El Pilar, it was detected only through the application of remote sensing technology LiDAR.
