Mysterious Maya Calendar & Mural Uncovered

May 10, 2012—Researchers have uncovered a remarkably well-preserved Maya mural and calendar markings that add perspective on Maya thinking.

National Geographic Society grantee William Saturno and his team uncovered the artwork in what was either a home or workplace abandoned hundreds of years ago. The findings are published in the May 11 issue of the journal Science and the June edition of National Geographic magazine.
