Guatemala Recovers Mayan Artifact Dating from 250-900 A.D. from U.S.

The Guatemalan government announced the repatriation from the United States of a Mayan panel dating from the classic period, 250-900.

The limestone piece, which stands roughly 50 centimeters (19.6 inches) tall, was taken from the La Corona site in the northern province of Peten, an area seen as the cradle of the ancient Maya civilization.
