One of the biggest Mayan pyramids in Belize has been all but destroyed by ‘ignorant’ builders who ravaged the ancient structure for crushed rock to fill in a new road.
The construction workers used bulldozers and diggers to claw at the sloping sides of the 100ft tall pyramid, which is part of the Nohmul complex – the most important Mayan site in northern Belize and one which dates back at least 2,300 years.
Horrified archaeologists claim there is no way the builders could have mistaken the Mayan ruins for a hill, as the landscape is naturally flat and the Nohmul complex is well known.
