Maya royal kitchen found in southeastern Mexico

Published on November 21st, 2011 | by Admin


A royal kitchen which dates back over 1,000 years has been found in Kabah, Mexico.

Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History, which announced the finding late Wednesday, said a large number of pots, stone artifacts and other materials were found in the area, along with evidence of fires.

The kitchen is believed to have been 40 meters long and 14 meters wide, and researchers date it at 750-950 A.D., when the pre-Hispanic town of Kabah was in its prime. There is, however, evidence of a human presence in the area as early as 300 B.C., the institute said.
