Blue Hole

Collapse of Mayan civilization likely due to drought, samples from Belize's Blue Hole reveal

By Barker:(NaturalNews) Belize's famed "Blue Hole" is a magnet for scuba divers and tourists, but it also may now be providing some answers regarding the demise of the Mayan civilization.

The Blue Hole is an underwater cave which lies at the center of an atoll roughly 40 miles from the Belize shoreline. It's a breathtakingly beautiful natural formation, but scientists have recently found that it also contains evidence supporting the theory that a prolonged drought period brought on the collapse of the Mayan culture.
