|Description ||A ceramic pot found in a burial chamber at the El Peru-Waka archaeological site in Laguna del Tigre National Park in Peten, north of Guatemala City. Archaeologists say a stone jar found at burial chamber in northern Guatemala leads them to believe it is the tomb of a great Maya queen. |
The team of U.S. and Guatemalan experts led by anthropologist David Freidel has also found other evidence, such as ceramic vessels and a large stone with carvings referring it as the burial site of Lady K'abel, considered the military governor of an ancient Maya city during the seventh century.
