NEWS! Thermal Anomalies in Egyptian Monuments?
Superbly incredible information on the Mayans, thanks for posting all that.
The new estimates on how many Mayans were just in that area is awesome.

Quote:"With this new data it's no longer unreasonable to think that there were 10 to 15 million people there,"
said Mr Estrada-Belli, 
"including many living in low-lying, swampy areas that many of us had thought uninhabitable."

That is a lot of people in one civilization to just pretty much disappear.
There must have been an exodus from the immediate area there,
that lasted over a hundred years.
Once the capability to sustain the agricultural systems broke down ... probably to drought,
the civilization collapsed quickly.
They must have been absorbed into other Central American and Mexican cultures,
and there probably was a lot of massive deaths in wars and such.

The archaeologists have barely scratched the surface of amazing artifacts to find.

Finding the route through the connected maze of long distance separated cenotes,
by those diving explorers, 
is nothing less than incredible.
