MAYA PYRAMID DESTROYED

 

A construction company destroyed a major Maya ceremonial center in Belize while quarrying for materials to build a road. Even though the site was on private property, it is illegal to destroy any ancient Maya site in the country.  The blind destruction of archaeological sites for development purposes is a huge problem not only in Belize, but globally.
