Prehispanic buildings turned into stones, ceramic remains, human and animal bones were some of the findings located in a lateral cavern in the Cenote Xlacah of the Maya archaeological site Dzibilchaltún.

Invasive fish species were being removed from the site when diver Erick Sosa identified a small entrance covered with vegetation in the northeastern part of the Cenote Xlacah.

On Twitter, Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History wrote in Spanish: "Find out more! Findings in a cave of Xlacah cenote in the Archaeological site Dzibilchaltún are announced." 

Surrounded by the beautiful Cenote Xlacah, Dzibilchaltún is a small Maya archaeological site in Yucatán, southern Mexico, about 10 miles North of the state capital Mérida.

It should be noted that the Cenote Xlacah has been explored only twice, once at the end of the 1950s and then at the end of 1990s.
