On an expedition to explore Mayan ruins in northwestern Guatemala, archaeologists stumbled upon something unexpected. It was presumed to be a temple, but in reality it turned out to be a facade for a hidden pyramid, 85 feet square at the base, and 25 feet high.
The Mayans which lived in the area of Lake Peten Itza in Guatemala had been known to make animal and human sacrifices, but a recent discovery by Polish divers and researchers indicate that blood sacrifices were made for close to a thousand years, especially when they faced war with their Spanish conquerors in 1697.
