DNA May Help Confirm Mayan Battle

Photo taken last week of ruins of a Mayan temple at the El Mirador archaeological site in Guatemala, near the Mexican border. Reuters reports that researchers are performing DNA tests of hundreds of spear tips, arrowheads and bone fragments found here to learn more about a dramatic battle believed to have occurred between a Mayan royal family and invaders from hundreds of miles away. El Mirador until recently has been buried under thick jungle vegetation.
