posted on October 5, 2012

Jessica Daues of the Record reports that in Guatemala a team of archaeologists, led by Washington University in St. Louis Professor David Freidel, has “discovered the tomb of Lady K’abel, a seventh-century Maya Holy Snake Lord considered one of the great queens of Classic Maya civilization.” Daues writes that “discovery is significant not only because the tomb is that of a notable historical figure in Maya history, but also because the newly uncovered tomb is a rare situation in which Maya archaeological and historical records meet.”
