San Andrés archeological site

La Prensa Grafica had a recent article with photo gallery concerning the current excavation of a tunnel at the San Andrés archeological site. At San Andrés, ancient Mayan peoples had erected an acropolis consisting of a stair-stepped temple and other structures. The latest excavations have found more remnants of the Mayan civilization as archeologists tunnel into the site.

You can see an extensive photo gallery from the site and its museum here, and a 360 degree panorama of the San Andres site at this link.

Thanks so much for this link, Tim. I visited the site thirteen years ago (I guess that was the 'old museum') and I can see that much more work has taken place.
