Housing Area For Elite Ancients Found At Mexico’s Chichen Itza

  • Archaeologists discovered a new group of structures at the famous historical site of Chichen Itza in Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, believed to have been part of a housing complex used by the city’s elite.
  • Archeologists previously believed that there were no residential housing areas in the city that was founded in the 5th Century AD, according to Archaeologist Francisco Perez. The recent discovery would be “the first residential group where a ruler lived with his entire family,” Perez added.
