BBC News - Ancient pyramid tomb found in Mexico Interestingly, they say they have found an ancient pyramid burial site dating back 2700 years. Its in Mayan country. You know, I have met one or two people that told me the Egyptian burials had some similarities with the Mayan ones; but that was over 5 years ago. This latest find has a body surrounded by precious jade artifacts, a carefully buried woman and baby, and one male body apparently tossed carelessly into the tomb. I guess the first focus should be to see how its connected with South American History, but I am still curious to see if they will find any Egyptian connections. In case the story page disappears, the names of the interviewed archeologists are Bruce Bachand, Emiliano Gallaga and Lynneth Lowe. The discovery was a joint venture of Brigham Young University, Mexican National Institute of History and Anthropology, and the National Autonomous University of Mexico.
