Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) announce don Friday, Aug. 24, that several major artifacts, including a stucco head, had been discovered at the Maya Palenque archeological site in the southern state of Chiapas.

The pieces were found in what appears to have been a ceremonial center, along with residues of ritual ceramics, petrified fauna, mineral deposits and other elements.

Palenque, one of Mexico’s most important pre-Columbian cities, was developed during the Maya Late Classic period, between 684 and 720 A.D.
