Ancient Mayan city found by archaeologists in Mexico on a construction site

Archaeologists claim that the site, known as Xiol, exhibits characteristics of the Mayan Puuc architectural type, which is uncommon close to Merida but common on the southern Yucatan Peninsula.


On a construction site for what would become an industrial park close to Merida, on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, archaeologists discovered the remains of an ancient Mayan metropolis with palaces, pyramids, and plazas. Archaeologists claim that the site, known as Xiol, exhibits characteristics of the Mayan Puuc architectural type, which is uncommon close to Merida but common on the southern Yucatan Peninsula. One of the archaeologists who oversaw the city's excavation, Carlos Peraza, believed that more than 4,000 people were living in the area at the time. The city was thought to have been inhabited between 600 and 900 A.D.

Priests and scribes from various social groups lived in these enormous palaces, but some common people resided in modest homes, according to Peraza.
