One of Mexico‘s most famous archaeological treasures’, funeral finery from Mayan times, has arrived in the nation’s capital.
They belonged to a woman known as the “Red Queen”, who is believed to have been a prominent figure in the Mayan world.
She was found about a quarter of a century ago in an ancient citadel, in a red sarcophagus, in a red room.
Archaeologists and historians have reconstructed her features, burial jewellery, death mask and some of the aspects about her life.
