Description

In this National Geographic News article, read about the discovery in Guatemala of a lost city believed to be one of the crowning jewels in the ancient civilization of the Maya. A six-year study of clues in hieroglyphics and palaces suggest the 1,400-year-old city disintegrated not from drought, as some experts believe, but from royal power struggles.
