Kuluba in Tizimin, Yucatan, Mexico

 

 

The majestic archaeological site of Kulubá in Tizimín will open its doors to the public in 2023

 

A Maya archaeological zone that has been explored for some time and has not been open to the public is Kulubá, which is located in the municipality of Tizimín.

 

(INAH).- The exploration of the site has concluded, so it would open its doors to the general public in the year 2023.

The new delegate of the INAH in Yucatan, Arturo Chab Cárdenas, declared that Kulubá will not open to the public until next year, since services are still lacking.

“We are in talks with the City Council of Tizimín for infrastructure issues,” he assured.

“The exploration and research work has already been completed, now we are in the stage of analyzing the artifacts and materials found, such as ceramics, obsidian, shells, and 29 burial bones,” said Alfredo Barrera Rubio, a researcher at the National Institute Anthropology and History (INAH).

He explained that after the explorations Kulubá already features a total of five Maya palaces.

The fourth stage of the Kulubá project, which began in November 2019 and ended in April 2021, also uncovered 29 burial bones, ceramic, obsidian, and shell materials, as well as two other Maya palaces.

The buildings show two important moments of the Maya in Kulubá: the Late Classic (600-900 BC) and the Terminal Classic (850 to 1,050 BC).

Likewise, one of the palaces shows the heyday of Chichén Itzá “it is very clear in the mural painting, architecture, and ceramics, it is something that is evident in the archaeological materials that we found,” the expert said.

With these findings, the archaeological zone will be more attractive to tourists, “not only because of its roads and buildings that housed the Mayan kings but also because of its peculiar architectural beauty distributed among the low jungle of Yucatan,” Alfredo Barrera Rubio concluded.

I've heard and read before that the Archaeologist have only excavated anywhere between 5% to 10% of the ancient structures and artifacts throughout the world in general which does tells us that our ancestors were way more progressive and productive than what we give them credit for. And with so much ancient structures and artifacts to be discovered does suggest to us that there were large populations than previously thought of that were once prevalent in several regions of the world in order to accomplish these feats of engineering. Unfortunately several of these ancient structures and events were lost in history. Several of them will never found either since a lot of them are biodegradable such as structures made of wood and in colder regions housing structures made of ice and snow such as igloos. Also several ancient sites have been destroyed through warfare and natural events or they've been recycled to construct newer structures.

What could Archaeologist do to salvage the remaining ancient sites and artifacts? They'll likely continue what they've been doing before since their agenda is to recover, protect and understand them. With new science and tech gadgets available at their disposal, archaeologist are able to expedite their research and excavation of these sites however it may not be readily available in several countries and they are quite expensive. Some countries are inaccessible to begin with or too dangerous to enter or too difficult to reach since a lot these remote areas are underdeveloped. Some places are nearly impossible to reach as well such as underneath the seas and thick ice sheets. Some governments at the moment does not consider archaeology a priority and therefore it does not receive enough funding and support for the excavation. Also some legendary ancient sites are questionably real or fiction. It will take time to find these ancient sites since there's not enough archaeologist and experts also.

Ironically the more archaeologist find ancient sites and artifacts, the more they realize that there are actually a lot more to be discovered. In other words, the discovery rate percentage isn't going up from 5% to 10% but quite the opposite is happening instead. It appears that the discovery rate statistics are going further down to the single digit numbers from 10% to 5% or less.  This implies we need more archaeologist and experts to find these ancient wonders.

Early Archaeology, how old? Surely the artifacts and ancient sites would have to come first before the first archaeologist. The subject was not as early as the first astronomers that observed the night skies however archaeology was already in existence long before recorded history.

We know now that there are ancient sites that were constructed during pre-flood era or Antediluvian and it's likely that the newly arrivals that found it in an abandon ruin state did some level of observation and studying. They took what they learned and constructed their society that eventually became a civilization. This is why some civilizations go through cycles. Eventually their civilization would in turn collapsed and then another new group of people discovered it and the whole cycle starts over again however their effort went unrecorded and therefore unrecognized throughout history. In a way we could call these pioneers early archaeologist, early engineers, early historians, etc...
