My first Mayan ruins. I shall be seeing more of them, but for now, photos of my visit to Monte Alban near Oaxaca…

The random skulls – one shows holes in the skull which are thought to be some kind of medical practise of the time. The jade-encrusted skull was discovered n Tomb 7 at Monte Alban, and is now on display at the museum in the Santo Domingo convent, Oaxaca.
