An Old Corner

Julio and Tom have been trying to flatten a dirt area for more parking.  They found one dirt bump that refused to be flattened, so Julio went at it with a pick ax, assuming it was a rock under the ground. As he chipped off the top layer, he realized that the bump was made of dry laid stones at right angles, probably the corner of a Maya structure buried over the years. We have found a number of artifacts in that area, so this was not too much of a surprise, but still interesting.
