Over 1,000 Mayan codices were discovered in the basement of a Los Angeles museum, presumably owned by Randolph Hunt and donated to the museum. Two other codices were found by the Maya Itza Council and have been analyzed for the past 10 years. If that's not enough, 7 additional codices were found by a treasure hunter. Carbon dating has authenticated these sacred texts and professional photographs have been taken for the Maya Itza Council to analyze the meaning behind these lost codices. One of the codices, in particular, is of great interest to the Maya who stated the codex represented "the essential pieces of information that we needed. This is how we go 4th dimensional."

October 29, 2011 (CHICHEN ITZA) - The Itza Mayan Council has confirmed the addition of two Mayan codices that the world has never seen. The council has been exploring these codices for the past ten years. To prove the authenticity, the codices have been carbon dated back to the 1300ís and authenticated by two different universities. One of the codices is called the Windcall Codex which is 13 pages long and unfolds like an accordion to show 13 pages on the backside as well.

On the first page of the codex, it shows five Mayans doing a ceremony while holding five crystal skulls. The skulls are implemented all throughout the codex until the last page, where a transformation appears to be taking place in Chichen Itza.

According to Mayan elder Hunbatz Men, these codices were discovered in a Los Angeles museum. Hunbatz asked Drunvalo Melchizedek to obtain the original codices from the museum but upon conferring with the museumís curator, he was denied due to the new antiquities laws.

However, the curator informed Melchizedek that there were over 1,000 codices in the museumís basement originating from a Randolph Hurst collection stemming from the 1920ís. It would take considerable time, around 10 years or so, to purchase these items, so Melchizedek suggested to Hunbatz that the codices were to be photographed. Melchizedek estimated a total of 75,000 pages are available to be photographed and analyzed by the Maya.

Burning books doesn't have a history of being successful but the Spaniards came very close with the Mayans.
