While working for Zug – Mayan tomb discovered by chance in Mexico


Scientists have discovered a new burial chamber during construction work on the controversial Tren Maya Railroad project in southeastern Mexico. A complete human skeleton has been found in a room near the Palenque archaeological site in Chiapas state, the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) said Monday (local time).

Grave goods were found in a second room, such as plates and figures made of green stone.

Train line to transport millions of tourists
As of 2024, the Tren Maya will cover a distance of about 1,500 kilometers, mostly on the Yucatán Peninsula, carrying about three million tourists a year. According to the plans, freight trains and regular passenger trains will also use the new rail network.

The train is intended to boost tourism in southeastern Mexico. However, environmental groups and representatives of indigenous communities have filed lawsuits against the project – there are six UNESCO World Heritage Sites and five biosphere reserves in the region.
