City of the Monkey God

If you haven’t seen yet, a “lost city” was discovered in Honduras’ rain forest.  Unfortunately there’s a lot of ranching in the area threatening to destroy a large tract of forest and potentially the ruins as well.  You can listen to the full NPR interview with one of the discoverers here.

You can also read National Geographic’s article and see pictures, including a stone effigy of a “were-jaguar” (that’s right, a human who can change into a jaguar like a were-wolf) here.
