In this episode we begin by discussing the recent developments in Mexico and Guatemala, where evidence of ruins of enormous urban areas have been discovered associated with known sites. Basically, nerds showed up with helicopters and lasers and demonstrated how to do archaeology in the 21st century.
We also discuss a fascinating submerged cave system in Mexico that has been underwater since the end of the ice age, which was found to contain bones of pliestocene animals, human bones and artifacts, wall carvings and stone staircases and altars.
