It may not be the year 2012 anymore, but the Mayans keep giving humanity fascinating pieces of their ancient culture to wonder over. Deep in the jungle of the southeastern state of Campeche, Mexico, archaeologists have discovered an ancient, huge, lost Mayan city called Chactún. According to experts at Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), the size of the previously-unknown city in the Mexican state suggests it was once a seat of government for Mayan civilization. It covers more than 54 acres of jungle in the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve. Archeologists believe it could have been a major city during the period of 600 A.D. to 900 A.D., some 1,400 years ago. via Latinos Post.
