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.
