Due to lack of glyphic inscriptions is unknown what the pre-Hispanic name of El Rey "The King", settlement located in the southern part of the island of Cancun. The current name came about during the early stages of exploration, when an anthropomorphic sculpture was discovered with a carved garment researchers found the headdress of a monarch. The head of "The King" became part of the heritage of the Archaeological Museum of Cancun.

Debido a la carencia de inscripciones glíficas se desconoce cuál era el nombre prehispánico de El Rey, asentamiento ubicado en la parte sur de la isla de Cancún. La denominación actual surgió durante las primeras etapas de exploración, cuando se descubrió una escultura antropomorfa con una prenda tallada que pareció a los investigadores el tocado de un monarca. La cabeza de “El Rey” se integró al acervo del Museo Arqueológico de Cancún. Estacionamiento, sanitarios y expedición de boletos. También, hay guías certificados que ofrecen recorridos durante las horas de visita. Lunes a domingo de 8 a 17 horas. Fotografía; Grupo Esparza Editores, Virtualica.com.mx, Espeditour.com

This is an overview of North America

North America includes Mexico, the United States, Canada, and Gotham City.

The region temporarily existed as a Protectorate of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, with its capital being the city of San Francisco. Sadly, this term of benevolent ebullience lasted a brief two decades and ended c. 1880.

The United States is now the dominant country of North America. It arose as a nation only 225 years ago after a successful rebellion against the British government under King George III.

From a distance, it appears that the eastern coastlines of North and South America fit exactly into the west coast of Africa. In fact, about 250 million years ago these continents really were all connected in one land mass that we have named Pangaea.

With such a foundation in tectonic unity, there is no doubt that someday soon the people on every continent of earth will realize their fundamental similarities. Expect massive leaps in creative output in your area!
