An elaborately-carved Maya altar more than 1,200 years old has been recovered from looters in Guatemala after a joint investigation by archaeologists, police and village elders. The 600-pound (270-kg) altar, which had been missing for two years, has been hailed as a masterpiece of Mayan art.

It was erected in the year 796 in the city of Cancuen, at the site of one of the Mayans' largest royal palaces.
