CITES LINDBERGH'S AID
Describes Rise of Early Indian

Empires as Evidenced
by Discoveyies.
"About 2000 years ago, there be-
gan to develop near the Isthmus
what was destined to be the great-
est divilization in America until its
discovery by the Europeans," said
Dr. Sylvanus G. Morley, associate in
American archaeology at the Car-
negie institution of Washington,
speaking yesterday on recent de-
velopments in the archaeo gical
work of the institution.
This Maya ci'vilization appears in
two phases, 15r. Morley said. Up to
about 600 A. D., the Mayas built up
what is known as the Old empire
but economic disturbances at this
time caused them to move to sur-
rounding territory where the New
empire was started.
Lindbergh Explored Lands.
Recently, Dr. Morley added, Col.
Charles A. Lindbergh flew over Maya
lands in Yucatan and Honduras
with a crew that included Mrs.
Lindbergh and a Carnegie archaeol-
ogist, and photographed centers of
Maya civilization. A number of these
pictures were shown on the screen
during the talk.
The Old empire city which is be-
ing excavated, was discovered by
explorers from the Carnegie insti-
tution in 1916, Dr. Morley said. Mon-
uments were found there which
date from about 68 A. D. Among
the discoveries made was a figurine,
apparently from a very earlynperi-
od, and a pyramid in good condi-
tion having proto-Mayan character-
istics. Ceremics were also found in
the lowest levels there.
"Evidence seems to be complete
that we are dealing here with the
earliest period in the Mayan civil-
ization," he stated.
Many Discoveries Made.
At Chi'chen Itza, where the New
empire center is being- excavated.
several large structures have been
unearthed, Dr. Morley said. N e w
discoveries were made so often that
the staff became "afraid to stick a
shovel in the ground," he remarked.
In an early temple, buried under
the base of a later temple, was ex.
cavated .an urn containing a sphere
of j-adite, identified as a Mayan
charm, and a beautiful turquoise
.plaque, which has since been re-
constructed, Dr. Morley said.
