Brown discovery named ‘most popular of 2012’ by National Geographic

PROVIDENCE – National Geographic has named the Brown University archaeology team’s discovery of the Maya Temple of the Night Sun last summer in Guatemala the most popular discovery of 2012.

National Geographic called the discovery “dramatic” and “an archaeological goldmine.” The temple is reported to date to about 350 to 400 A.D.

The Brown team, led by Stephen Houston - a professor of social science, anthropology and archaeology - first began uncovering the temple, part of the Maya archaeological site at El Zotz, Guatemala, in 2009 and in July reported discovering the temple, sitting just behind a previously uncovered royal tomb.
