Not Guatemala, No LiDar, No Archaeological Investigation, No TV Show (NH)

    You might’ve seen the stories:

Sprawling Maya network discovered under Guatemala jungle (2 February 2018)
And
    You might plan on catching the NatGeo Channel Exclusive on TV:

Laser Scans Reveal Maya "Megalopolis" Below Guatemalan Jungle

    You might not have seen these photos below that millions of people haven’t seen of a place which, when you think about it, is not very different – except that it has already been forever changed –and no one took any Lidar images...


       But a work crew did expose for, a moment, a wounded Sacred Ceremonial Landscape with chainsaws -



 -and ran over Sacred Stones that may have been graves or other sorts of memorials without a thought about it, as if they were piles of trash rather than pieces of history...


– and no there was no Archaeological Investigation into this Cultural Landscape or an evaluation from a Tribal Historic Preservation Officer about what is clearly a Ceremonial Stone Landscape filled with unique but recognizable features that in a civilized country would be considered a National Treasure, as far as I know at this moment....

   No headline about an effigy, a Great Serpent perhaps...

...looking toward the south, toward a huge split boulder:
