Mayan Murals

Archaeologists working in Guatemala have discovered the first known Mayan murals painted on the interior walls of a room. They look quite sophisicated too. Other finds in the room include the oldest-known Mayan astronomical tables, dating from the 9th Century (CLICK). The dig at Xultun was financed by National Geographic (CLICK for a photo tour).

They are quite marvellous and are far better than the rubbish going up for the Turner Prize.
