Archeologists have found in Central America, traces of an unknown civilization

Archaeological expedition, who returned from the jungles of Honduras, announced the discovery of the ruins of the city-States belonging to the unknown science of civilization.

The expedition included scientists from the U.S. and Honduras, engineer (specialist in working with lidar), an anthropologist, an ethnobotanist and 16 fighters of the Honduran special forces, ensuring the safety of research. The ruins found in La-Moskitia region of Honduras, covered with impassable jungle. There the scientists examined and mapped the walls, squares, mounds and pyramid. These structures belonged to an unknown native American culture, which flourished in the years 1000-1400. The descendants (and the robbers) never got to the city, hidden in dense vegetation.

Scientists have discovered 52 artifacts including stone benches, murals depicting snakes and vultures, as well as the head of the “man-Jaguar”. This is probably a fragment of a sculpture showing a shaman in an altered state of consciousness. All findings were documented, however, scientists have left them in place. The city’s location is kept secret (not to be devastated by the robbers).

The history of discovery began in 2012, when a group of American archaeologists and filmmakers lidar (laser radar) spotted under the cover of the jungle La Mosquitia straight lines and rectangles. As in nature this geometry does not occur, the scientists decided that they have found the ruins of the city — and no mistake.

In 1939 about the discovery of the city said American adventurer Theodore Mord (Theodore Morde), allegedly flying over it by plane. However, the Mord died in a car accident, and failing to tell the public about the location of the city.

According to main hypothesis, these ruins belong to the legendary Ciudad Blanca (White city), about which Emperor Charles V were written by Hernan cortés . Conquistador heard from the locals that on the territory where now is Honduras, hiding the state, equal at Aztec riches.
