New Mayan discovery in Guatemala speaks of the end of an era in 2012

The group of researchers working in the excavation project of the City Maya La Corona, in northern Guatemala, the ancient writings known as the mysterious "Site Q", announced yesterday the discovery of a glyph for the years 1300, which provides a second reference to December 21, 2012, in the Mayan Calendar.

"Marcello Canuto (Study Director) and Tomas Barrientos found the longest text ever discovered in Guatemala, is carved on the steps of the ladder, and records 200 years of history of the city's crown," said David Stuart, director of Mesoamerica Center at the University of Texas at Austin. Stuart was part of an expedition in 1997, who first explored the site.

The Mayan writing refers to the year 2012 in a cosmological sense very broad, as the analysis in the study of the University."This was a time of great political turmoil in the Maya region, and this king was forced to refer to a larger cycle of time ending in 2012," said David Stuart.

"In times of crisis, the ancient Maya used their calendar to promote continuity and stability, rather than predicting the apocalypse," said Marcelo A. Canuto, director of the American Institute for Research of Tulane and co-director of excavations at La Corona.

For the director, "This text speaks more about the history of the old policy, rather than prophecy."

Other Mayanists anonymous apocalyptic understand that the dates are a warning to humans, and that continuity can occur if society changes its behavior, not to go straight to destruction.

While researchers deciphered Barrientos Canuto and new findings in May, David Stuart recognized the reference date of 2012 in a block of stairs leading 56 finely carved hieroglyphics, reports the University.

That also marks a royal visit to the Crown in the year 696 by the more powerful Maya ruler of the time, Yuknoom Yich'aak K'ahk 'of Calakmul, only a few months after his defeat by Tikal, its rival from year 695.
It is believed that this ruling was on a visit to allay fears after its defeat, the report said.

The Regional Archaeological Project The Crown (PRALC) is carried out in the rainforest of northern Guatemala since 2008 with the participation of Canuto Marcelo, a researcher at Tulane and Tomas Barrientos of the Universidad del Valle de Guatemala. The study focuses on the excavations of the "Classic Maya Crown City" known only to a mysterious sign of "Site Q", highlights the Tulane Institute.They directed these excavations at sites previously devastated by looters.

"Last year we realized that the robbers had a particular building carved stones discarded because they were too eroded to be sold on the antiquities market," Barrientos said, "So we knew that we would find something important, but thought it might have missed something. "
