These ancient Lenca artifacts were recovered from an abandoned site known as El Chircal Zona Arqueológica near the colonia of Yarumela, La Paz, La Paz near where I live. They are in a private collection and were acquired many decades ago. Families have handed down the ancient treasures over generations. The artifacts are more than 3,000 years old, perhaps older. When the Maya Empire reached its southern expansion at Copán in northwestern Honduras, the Lenca were the dominant population group at numerous sites in what is now Honduras. They became trading partners. I will be researching El Chircal further in the days ahead to help formulate a development plan for further organized exploration.
