Mexico City - Archaeologists on Thursday were still digesting this week's announcement of the discovery of a royal kitchen from the time of the Mayas in the Kabah archaeological area, in the south-eastern Mexican state of Yucatan.

Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), which announced the finding late Wednesday, said a large number of pots, stone artifacts and other materials were found in the area, along with evidence of fires.

The kitchen is believed to have been 40 metres long and 14 metres wide, and researchers date it at 750-950 AD, when the pre-Hispanic town of Kabah was in its prime. There is however evidence of a human presence in the area as early as 300 BC, the INAH said.

The kitchen is believed to have been part of a palace.
