My bad. It's been awhile and many books since I read this although I have the book. It was Honduras, not Guatemala.

This city has been a myth for centuries. The archaeologists had no name for this particular civilization and they aren't even sure if this particular site is what was known as the white city. LIDAR found 5 covered sites, 2 others larger than this one and 2 small like this. They had to be taken in by helicopter. Here's an interview with Preston but it's an hour long. There are other videos and reviews available.

This thread is a perfect example of why the forum "Ancient Mysteries (which this is) & Alternative History (which deserves a part in the conspiracy section)" should be separated.

If not, then the terms "Ancient Mystery" and "Alternative History" seem synonymous to you.

Doctor Who managed to find three of them on his own. Surely a fringe Atlantidiot can find two.

Truth is, I'm tired of Atlantis and the Great Pyramid.  So I'm looking for other topics to put here!

LIDAR truly is a game-changer for archeology. The way it can 'remove' a forest is mind-blowing.

Oh, looks like a city with "walls" around it.  Isn't that considered immoral?
