Height of La Danta?Edit

172 m can't be true. If that's what it says in that National Geographic movie (what kind of source is that anyway?), they got it wrong. Richard D. Hansen says in this 2007 talk @55m20s that it's 72 m high and that it is the largest pyramid in volume, unless it was built on a hill, which isn't clear yet.--87.162.46.197 (talk) 22:05, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Robert Sharer gives 70m high in The Ancient Maya, 6th ed, p253. I'll fix this in the article. Simon Burchell (talk) 20:39, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

El MiradorEdit

We also have a El Mirador cave in Spain that is also an archaeology site. [1]

Neutrality and emotive languageEdit

I have added the neutrality tag based on various excessive embellishments and emotive language - for example "one of the most massive ancient structures in the world"; "this tremendous rise in human population "; "Mcreated many astonishingly beautiful artifacts"; " cut down every available green tree in the area"; Garyvines (talk) 00:16, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

The causeways were known in ancient times as sacbeobEdit

It's highly unlikely that the Inhabitants of el Mirador spoke Yucatec Maya, therefore their causeways could have had a different name than Sacbeob (plural of Sac Be) in Yucatec Maya. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Soparamens (talkcontribs) 17:25, 4 August 2016 (UTC)

I've rephrased that to take out the reference to "referred to in ancient times as". I don't think we actually know what they called their roads in ancient times... And certainly not in the Preclassic. Simon Burchell (talk) 10:21, 5 August 2016 (UTC)
