Lost City of Botaderos Mountain

The ruins of a city said to be older than the Mayans have been discovered near Copan in Honduras. According to Mexican anthropologist Victor Heredia, the so-called City of Encounters has been located in the wilderness of Botaderos mountain about 120 miles north of the capital of Tegucigalpa. The region was inhabited by Tawhakas Indians, whose descendants still live in Honduras, although it is unknown which culture inhabited the site. Reuters reported that the ruins covers at least 12 acres at the point where two rivers meet. The city includes vestiges of three rectangular plazas, various mounds and small stone-encrusted pillars.

Eastern Honduras is also home to the Mayan ruins at Copan, part of a civilization that extended, according to conventional scholarship, from Mexico through Central America between A.D. 250 and 1000.

It appears to have been built in the pre-Classical or early Classical period between 300 B.C. and 300 A.D., said Heredia. "It's a pre-Hispanic city, a complex site. It has a well-defined architectural structure that implies the work of many people over a long period of time," he said.


The ultimate origin of Copan’s ruins remains a mystery. Frank Joseph reported recently from “The First Copan Congress” in Honduras, where prominent scholars convened to discuss the ruins, academic science has shown little interest in exploring the deeper implications of the highly sophisticated art and science revealed in the area. Here they see latter-day corroboration for the work of maverick scholars like James Churchward and Augustus LePlongeon. A century ago, the pair led the way in arguing that the civilizations of central and south America had originated in a drowned Pacific land called Lemuria. They have not been proved wrong yet.
