CU-Boulder team discovers ancient road at Maya village buried by volcanic ash 1,400 years ago

University of Colorado Boulder Anthropologist Payson Sheets and his team of students from CU-Boulder are excavating a Maya village in El Salvador buried by a volcanic eruption 1,400 years ago

This past summer they unexpectedly unearthed a sacbe that appears to lead to and from the town. According to Sheets, they were more then surprised with their discovery since sacbes have only been found on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.
