A Mayan river port of Moral-Reforma was almost unknown until a group of archaeologists began excavating it three months ago.

When one climbs up the first 15 steps of the pyramid, one can see a series of altars discovered in recent weeks which “surely were painted and plastered,” according to the expert.

Masks, small sculptures, stones, spear points and heads painted green comprise the 23 pieces unearthed in the area adjacent to the pyramid.

“This morning, we found another little face of a person. These pieces are of limestone, flint, the same material with which the pyramids are made,” said Lopez during a stroll through the ruins.
