  1. Of course, this isn't news to the Indigenous Mayan people, but researchers think they've "found" something: Huge Mayan city with pyramids found hidden under jungle High-tech mapping suggests 10 million people may have lived within the Maya Lowlands http://www.cbc.ca/beta/news/technology/mayan-pyramids-1.4519863 Researchers using a high-tech aerial mapping technique have found tens of thousands of previously undetected Mayan houses, buildings, defence works and pyramids in the dense jungle of Guatemala's Peten region, suggesting that millions more people lived there than previously thought. The discoveries, which included industrial-sized agricultural fields and irrigation canals, were announced Thursday by an alliance of U.S., European and Guatemalan archaeologists working with Guatemala's Mayan Heritage and Nature Foundation. ... And the extensive defensive fences, ditch-and-rampart systems and irrigation canals suggest a highly organized workforce. "There's state involvement here, because we see large canals being dug that are re-directing natural water flows," said Thomas Garrison, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Ithaca College in New York. The 2,100 square kilometres (810 square miles) of mapping done vastly expands the area that was [previously known to be] intensively occupied by the Maya, whose culture flourished between roughly 1,000 BC and 900 AD. Their descendants still live in the region. Ancient Indigenous cosmopolitan cities of North America. Not 'nomads', not wandering 'hunter-gatherers', but sophisticated agricultural, technological, cultural societies and cities of millions of people. Fascinating!
