A Maya Codex Found in a Cave Is Authentic, Researchers Say

The 13th-century manuscript ended up in the hands of Mexican collector Josué Sáenz, whose story would make a good art crime thriller. Sáenz claims he had received an invitation from an unnamed person to hop on a plane that deposited him on a remote airstrip in Chiapas, where he was presented with the codex. It eventually went on display in 1971 at New York City’s Grolier Club, the organization from which it takes its present-day name: the Grolier Codex. Archaeologists have since been butting heads over its authenticity, largely due to its cryptic emergence and the number of forged Maya codices that have come to light.

Peru This Week reports "the newly discovered road is about one and a half kilometers long, and varies between 1.2 and 1.4 meters in breadth, depending on the terrain. The road begins at Wayraqtambo and leads up to a platform from which travelers can see parts of the complex at Machu Picchu. Magnificent Machu Picchu Astete added that the road “offers an impressive view of the llaqta inka [village area] at Machu Picchu, from a different angle than everyone usually sees it, and could help to decongest the tourist flow at Machu Picchu.” View from the newly discovered road.

Native American populations descend from three key migrations, scientists say. Scientists have found that Native American populations -- from Canada to the southern tip of Chile -- arose from at least three migrations, with the majority descended entirely from a single group of First American migrants that crossed over through Beringia, a land bridge between Asia and America that existed during the ice ages, more than 15,000 years ago.

Native American populations descend from three key migrations, scientists say

By studying variations in Native American DNA sequences, the international team found that while most of the Native American populations arose from the first migration, two subsequent migrations also made important genetic contributions. The paper is published in the journal Nature July 11. "For years it has been contentious whether the settlement of the Americas occurred by means of a single or multiple migrations from Siberia," said Professor Andres Ruiz-Linares (UCL Genetics, Evolution and Environment), who coordinated the study. "But our research settles this debate: Native Americans do not stem from a single migration. UNSOLVED MYSTERIES. Dinosaurs lived in Mesozoic.

There are also two controversial collections: the collection from Dr. Earth Measure.
