The BBC and Smithsonian.com report that a large Mayan pyramid in Belize was destroyed by a construction company that used the rocks as filler for building a road. The temple was part of Noh Mul, a site that dates back to 350 B.C. and was active in two distinct periods, the late pre-Classic era and then again in the late-Classic era, from A.D. 600-900. Dr John Morris of the Belizean Institute of Archaeology said the temple was obviously a ruin and that the workers knew what they were doing. Archeologists complain that the destruction of temples for mundane reasons is an ongoing problem.
