Heritage Daily features Belize’s ATM Cave in a new article

Posted: Sunday, July 25, 2021. 6:27 pm CST.

By Benjamin Flowers: Heritage Daily, a site that specializes in archaeology and anthropology-related news has featured Belize’s Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) Cave in a new piece.

The article, published today, notes that the ATM Cave which translates to “Cave of the Crystal Sepulcher”, is a Maya ceremonial cave site located near San Ignacio in the Cayo District of Belize. The article shared notable historical facts about the discoveries made in the cave as well as insights into the religious beliefs and rituals associated with the Maya people who traversed the site.

“The Maya believed that the universe was divided into the sky, the earth, and the underworld, in which caves functioned as a portal or gateway to Xibalba, an underworld realm ruled by the Maya death gods and their helpers,” Heritage Daily said. “Evidence of Maya activity in the cave dates from between AD 250 to 900, with the earliest artifacts (mainly agricultural offerings such as small cobs of maize) being deposited close to the cave entrance.

The mention serves to promote Belize internationally as a tourist destination with something for every type of traveler, even academics. With global travel resuming and Belize’s tourism industry stakeholders working tirelessly to market the country in an effort to undo the damage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic mentions in publications such as Heritage Daily will go a long way to support those efforts.
