Recently discovered pyramid in the Mexican Jungle has helped historians learn more about the daily life of Mayans. These Mayan wall murals with hieroglyphic captions are different from other previous murals found, which depicted ruling elites, defeats in battles, and religious themes. They also differ because the newly discovered murals are located on the exterior of the pyramid instead of hidden inside, “…they were public” says Mayan expert Michael D. Coe. The new murals illustrate ordinary Mayans doing day to day activities, during 620 A.D to 700 A.D. These murals were most likely based off the people in Calakmul, the capital of Snake Kingdom, which at the time were the most influential cities of the Mayan Empire. These murals show common food such as corn, which was essential to the Mayan diet. They also depict clothing and jewelry worn by all different classes. But what is most surprising about these murals, is that they are freely displayed on the exterior of the pyramid. The pyramid’s burial has successfully preserved the unusual artwork of the Mayans.
