Possible remains of Mayan king found

Researchers in Honduras believe they have uncovered the remains of one of the first kings of Central America’s Mayan civilization.

Archaeologists working at Copan, a major site for Mayan civilization culture, believe they have found bones belonging to one of 16 Mayan kings.

‘We have found skeleton in a grave in the temple of Oropendola, which research suggests could be important because it may have belonged to one of the first rulers from the Mayan dynasty,’ said the director the Honduran Anthropology and History Institute, Dario Euraque.
