IZAMAL, Yucatan — A married couple from Canada had in their possession property with historical value belonging to the city of Izamal, El Diario de Yucatán newspaper reported.
On Thursday, June 29, on Calle 52 No. 1803 between 29 and 31 in Izamal, the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) retrieved 179 archaeological pieces, which originally belonged to the city of Izamal, from a Canadian couple who had been living in the city for years.
Among the pieces found were pre-hispanic ceramic vases as well as artworks made from stone, such as pilasters, ledges and molds, which once were part of large prehispanic buildings. Researchers and ceramic experts such as Sylviane Boucer Le Landais and Yoly Esperanza Palomo Carrillo were contacted to be part of this archaeological retrieval. Likewise, Francisco Rafael Burgos Villanueva, co-director of Izamal’s Archaeological Project (Proyecto Arqueológico de Izamal, in Spanish), as well as police agents and personnel from Izamal’s INAH were present.
