The pieces were found during an excavation by Salvadorean and Japanese archaeologists. With the findings it has been determined that the aspects that characterize the cultures that developed between 800 BC and 300 AD, are making carved stone sculptures, as in other archaeological sites in Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras, archaeologists mentioned.
