Remains of ancient civilization uncovered in Honduran jungle

TEGUCIGALPA, (Reuters) – Archaeologists working in the dense jungle of Honduras have found dozens of artifacts at a site where they believe twin cities from an ancient civilization once thrived, the head of the country’s anthropology institute said on Wednesday.

The artifacts unearthed at the site, in the eastern Mosquitia region of Honduras, point to a civilization with advanced artistic and engineering skills and are distinct from ancient Mayan cites also known to the region, said Virgilio Paredes, head of the national anthropology and history institute.
