In-Depth Study

Excavating around a pyramid buried by later phases of construction, Guatemalan archaeologist Edwin Román, at left, consults with project director Bill Saturno about his progress. "He was particularly concerned about the stability of the rubble fill as we tunneled closer to the ground's surface," explains Saturno. "Roots and water percolating through the fill can dramatically affect the safety of our tunnels."
