‘He was the big chief’: Grave of ancient king who laid foundations for Mayan civilisation in 700 B.C. unearthed by archaeologists

This is the extraordinary grave of an ancient king credited with laying the foundations for the Mayan civilisation more than 2,000 years ago, which has been discovered by archaeologists in Guatemala.

Researchers said they uncovered the grave of King K’utz Chman, a priest who is believed to have reigned around 700 B.C., at the Tak’alik Ab’aj dig in Retalhuleu, in the south-west of the country.

Packed with jade jewels and other artefacts, it is the oldest royal Mayan burial ground ever found.
