Just last year, Ivan discovered another unknown site in the area using aerial photographs. Named Chactún, this site may have been known to local loggers, but not to the scientific community. This was quite a large city anciently, with inhabitants numbering up to 40,000. It should not be surprising anymore, but discoveries like these keep happening. To us, this is particularly interesting, since we have traveled through this region and had no idea of what really was there. We hope to return again and see what progress has been made. If three new sites in a fairly small region have just recently come to light, who knows what further finds the future may hold?
