Archaeological Remains Inform About the Yucatan Peninsula

20 Jan

In the dark depths of an underwater cave in eastern Mexico, archaeologists uncovered the ancient remains of four prehistoric bears in the Yucatan Peninsula. Officials believe they could date back to the ice age.

A finding like this helps to inform archaeologists about the surrounding area, such as the fact that “Water level markings in the underwater cave suggests the cenote was not filled with water during the bear’s lifetime, providing crucial insights into the effects of climate change and the end of the ice age for scientists.” Take a look at the video of the archaeological findings underwater in the Yucatan Peninsula.
