In the 9th century a major drought occurred and the Mayans attempted to appease the rain god, Chaac, who lived in Xibalba (Shee-bal-ba) which means 'Place of Fright' to the Mayans with offerings that included human sacrifices. Unfortunately, their voices were not heard and the Mayan civilization was soon mostly abandoned. The bones found wee not a typical sacrifice as for the bones would lay as the human had when they died minus the flesh and connective tissue. The bones instead were as they would be if the remains had been carried in using a bag. Often when this occurs multiple peoples bones might be mixed together. In our case, some of the bones were really small, like a child's.
