Archaeologists have located more than 2,000 individual artifacts beneath the waters of the lake.

Quote

The items were found at what is believed to have once been an ancient ceremonial site and include ceramics, gold and gems. Some of the items, including puma heads carved in stone and intricately detailed gold leaf artifacts, are believed to date back over 1,000 years.

20 feet doesn't seem that deep, I'm surprised none of it was found sooner.  Great find though.

Where are the pictures of them, or are they waiting for the paint to dry?

Once a sacred place...for sure, not any more.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Is this the same lake that people tried to drain in order to get at the supposed riches below? Because that's awesome if so.
