LIDAR is revealing so many things in these forested areas. It's really helping to peel back the archeological onion.

An expedition to Honduras has emerged from the jungle with dramatic news of the discovery of a mysterious culture's lost city, never before explored. The team was led to the remote, uninhabited region by long-standing rumors that it was the site of a storied "White City," also referred to in legend as the "City of the Monkey God."

Nice, nice... (that they found it, that is. Not that it's threatened).
