Ancient Mayan Pyramid Bulldozed for Roadfill

BELIZE CITY – A construction company has essentially destroyed one of Belize’s largest Mayan pyramids with backhoes and bulldozers to extract rock for a road-building project.

The head of the Belize Institute of Archaeology says the destruction was detected late last week.
Only a small portion of center of the pyramid mound was left standing.
