Ancient Maya Salt Makers Worked from Home, Underwater Dig Reveals
Archaeologists working in Belize have found ancient Maya salt workers worked from home. The discovery was made during the excavation of Ta’ab Nuk Na, the largest known Maya salt works in the country, which is submerged in a coastal lagoon. There, the researchers uncovered a residential structure showing a household lived, as well as worked, at the site. The discovery was made at Paynes Creek National Park, in southern Belize, where over 100 other submerged Maya sites from between 600-1000 AD had been previously discovered. This includes several other salt works spread along the shore.
