The National Institute of Anthropology and History has located in the four sections that the railway project for the Southeast will include, about three thousand new archaeological remains, including monuments and pieces associated with other structures.
Among the main fears of the researchers was the possibility that the works would destroy important historical sites still undiscovered, along the 1,500 kilometers of route.
In the routes of the Mayan train project route, the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) has located nearly three thousand new archaeological remains, among monuments and pieces associated with other structures.
In general, they were small Mayan hamlets, more relevant structures, and ceramic waste. In addition, it was estimated that the routes would pass through some 24 cenotes in which there could be new finds, among them, remains of fauna from the Pleistocene, between 2.6 million years and 11,700 years.
All of this on the route through which the railroad will pass is built, and which covers a part of the state of Tabasco through Chiapas, Campeche, Yucatán and Quintana Roo.
