675 SV - Joya de Cerén Archaeological Site (1993)

Brief Description

"Joya de Cerén was a pre-Hispanic farming community that, like Pompeii and Herculaneum in Italy, was buried under an eruption of the Laguna Caldera volcano c. AD 600. Because of the exceptional condition of the remains, they provide an insight into the daily lives of the Central American populations who worked the land at that time."

霍亚-德赛伦考古遗址

"霍亚-德赛伦考古遗址是古拉丁美洲的一个农庄,像意大利的庞培和赫库兰尼姆一样,于公元600年左右遭到火山喷发掩埋。正是由于这种特殊的保存方式,使得人们现在可以从此了解当时在这块土地上耕作的中美洲人的日常生活。"
