Maybe I need to apologize to Mormon for thinking when he was talking about his 10,000 that it was a military designation like legion. Maybe it actually was that big?

Obviously this is still in the preliminary stages and who knows what conclusions will come. Maybe we can finally find that "Welcome to Zarahemla" sign?

That’s a really good find Nehor. LiDAR has proven a great breakthrough for archeology.

Quote

 “After decades of combing through the forests, no archaeologists had stumbled across these sites. More importantly, we never had the big picture that this data set gives us. It really pulls back the veil and helps us see the civilization as the ancient Maya saw it.”

A glimpse into the unique challenges for archeologists in Central America which typically do not ocurr in the Old World.

To quote your link:

"Among the most surprising findings was the ubiquity of defensive walls, ramparts, terraces, and fortresses. “Warfare wasn’t only happening toward the end of the civilization,” said Garrison. “It was large-scale and systematic, and it endured over many years.”
