Group hopes Sac Actun cave system becomes World Heritage site

first_imgTulum, Q.R. – The National Institute of Anthropology and History intends to promote the Sac Actun cave system in Tulum in hopes of it becoming a World Heritage site.The largest flooded cave system in the world, Sac Actun will be promoted by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.In a statement, INAH affirmed that the process will take a lot of time, but that the cave system is the “most important submerged archaeological site in the world.”The underground cave system has been measured at 351 kilometers, however, its connections with other neighboring systems is still being investigated. In the flooded system, researchers have discovered human remains as well as references to the first settlers of the American continent associated with the Maya culture.Throughout Sac Actun, 248 cenotes have been found along with 198 archaeological references, of which 138 seem to be linked to the Mayan civilization. Two to skeletal remains have also been discovered, each dating back at least 9,000 years.INAH says that it will be more feasible to apply to have Sac Actun (white cave) registered as Mixed Heritage with UNESCO. They continue to map and record everything discovered in the site.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more
