Archaeologists discovered a sealed Maya "ritual cave" containing a trove of relics

Fox News is reporting that "The cave system, which researchers believe had been sealed for 1,000 years, is known as Balamku or "Jaguar God," and contains at least 150 stunning objects. The findings were announced at a Monday press conference in Mexico City.
