2,300-Year-Old Mayan Temple Bulldozed in Belize for Road Fill

May 14 (Bloomberg) -- The overgrown ruins of a 2,300-year-old Mayan Temple in Belize were partially destroyed by contractors who wanted to use the limestone bricks for gravel to build a village road, according to the National Institute of Culture and Heritage.
“There was massive destruction and there’s very little we can do about it now,” John Morris, an archaeologist at the institute, said in phone interview today. “Now we have to ensure that we proceed with finding those who are guilty of it and start the process of prosecution.”
The site, known as Noh Mul, or Big Hill, is on private property and consists of 81 ancient buildings, which are protected by the National Institute of Culture and History Act. Archaeologists told 7 News Belize they were chased from the scene by a man with a machete before returning later with police to halt the destruction. Photos on the television station’s website showed a yellow excavator digging into the temple ruins.

How sad to see these proud remains of Aryan meso-American culture destroyed.

At least the Taliban had 'religious reasons' for demolishing the Bamiyan Buddhas, these idiots don't even have that. Pure greed of the lowest order.

And that's a valid reason is it?

Re: 2,300-Year-Old Mayan Temple Bulldozed in Belize for Road Fill

Fact of life. Conquering armies nearly always demolished everything from time immemorial. Roman architectures in Rome were of course 'recycled' for use during the Renaissance, for example Colosseum was a perfect quarry.

That said, of course in this 'enlightened' era, such pillage is unacceptable
