Am I misreading this or is this article saying that this slab was found back in 1978? Or did they found something recently and 1978 was the last time something has been found?

Am I misreading this or is this article saying that this slab was found back in 1978? Or did they found something recently and 1978 was the last time something has been found? After reading a few times, I think the monolith was discovered recently. The Templo Mayor temple was discovered by accident in 1978 by electrical workers. Hence the biggest discovery in 28 years. (2006 minus 1978 equals 28 years.)
