Few ancient civilizations have left us evidence of the roads they built to maintain effective communication and transportation within their sphere of influence. Until recently, the model for effective road creation and maintenance was ancient Rome.

However, the recent discovery of a system of superhighways that once connected pyramidal complexes in Guatemala, means that the Maya civilization may now rival the Romans. The finding was made last month by researchers of the Mirador Basin (Archaeological) Project.
