15-Year-Old Canadian Unfolds 'Lost' Ancient Mayan City

Technology today unfolds a lot of extremely astonishing historical facts which were once enjoyed by our ancestors but have been kept secret for sometime because of series of events--contributed by natural or man-made causes. 

One of the accounts from the past which were claimed as true is about the ancient Mayan cities located in Southern Mexico. Through the years, archeologists were able to find leads about these lost cities and eventually found the opportunity to explore them further. Using relevant sciences, they were able to specify infrastructures, cultures and other artifacts associated with the forgotten city.

Just recently, a 15-year old whiz originated from Quebec, Canada discovered that there's another 'lost Mayan city' yet to be unfold, and this claim was also connected with another archeological revelations the modern civilization should take note of, and through technology, this advancement was made possible.

Initially, he had this theory that Mayan cities were positioned according to the arrangement of star constellations. 

Mayan cities were synced by the stars, but there's one stellar point missing.

Conducting an archeological research or any other further studies would be very challenging in this area because of the forest covers, or the volume of vegetation covering the area.

This proposed theory opens doors to further discoveries involving the Mayan civilization.

The technique of using satellite imaging plays a vital role in this feat.

Sooner or later, William Gadoury's findings will be published in a scientific journal, and they are eyeing to present this information at Brazil's International Science fair in 2017. Kudos to the team!
