Welcome to Soledad de Maciel, locally known as
"La Chole" - one of Mexico's most exciting archeological sites.

Soledad de Maciel is a small village near
Zihuatanejo in the state of Guerrero. 

Locals have known for years that the site existed,
with artifacts unearthing after every big rain.
A local named Adan has a particular passion and has put together an amazing collection of his findings in a "museum" in his home. 

Recently the site has received much more attention
and the Mexican government has assigned archeologists
to excavate and report their findings. 

One significant thing they have found is artifacts and jewelry from many different cultural groups of Mexico, including
Aztec, Toltec, Olmec, Zapotec, Tarascan and Maya.

Another unusual thing is that the pyramid is built of brick.
