Archaeologists digging in northern Belize have found what they think is a royal tomb from the early classic period of the Maya civilization, complete with the skeleton of a man bedecked in a jeweled necklace befitting the ruler of a minor city-state in the fifth century A.D.Specialists welcomed the discovery as a potentially important source of knowledge of Maya royalty. Though tombs thought to be royal are found in Central America every few years, this one is unlike nearly all of the others because it has not been looted.

Call them port discoveries. Federal agents intercepted dozens of animal skeletons at the port of Baltimore in recent weeks because they "pose a potential threat to the United States poultry industry," according to the Department of Homeland Security. Separately, a rugged four-wheel-drive truck seized in April was destroyed Tuesday by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Chicken skeletons, found in display cases that had been imported from China, were found along with microscopes, test tubes, thermometers and other animal skeletons - of fish, rats, snakes and bats - and appeared to be educational materials, officials said.

Neanderthals and modern humans not only coexisted for thousands of years long ago, as anthropologists have established, but now their little secret is out: They also cohabited.At least that is the interpretation being made by paleontologists who have examined the 24,500-year-old skeleton of a young boy discovered recently in a shallow grave in Portugal. Bred in the boy's bones seemed to be a genetic heritage part Neanderthal, part early modern Homo sapiens. He was a hybrid, they concluded, and the first strong physical evidence of interbreeding between the groups in Europe.

U.S. skeleton coach Tim Nardiello was fired by the sport's national federation for ignoring orders to stay away from the team during its final Olympic preparations. Nardiello, who was denied a credential to coach at the Turin Games, is in St. Moritz, Switzerland, where the four sliders representing the United States are training. The letter of dismissal was e-mailed Friday. "I'm very disappointed," Nardiello said yesterday. Nardiello was suspended by the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation on Dec. 31, accused of sexually harassing team members.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- One day, about 3.5 million years ago, a small ape-man walking through the rain forests fell to his death down a 45-foot-deep cave shaft near here, setting the scene for yesterday's announcement of one of the most dramatic anthropological discoveries ever made.Almost the entire skeleton and skull of the 4-foot-tall hominid -- or member of the family of mankind -- has been found in the cave at Sterkfontein. It may be the oldest complete skeleton of an ancient ape-man unearthed anywhere.

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. - On the side of a snow-covered Adirondack mountain, in subzero temperatures, a young Iraqi is making his own statement of national pride. Far from home, with his country's future tied to this weekend's election, Faisal Ghazi Faisal tightens his helmet, pushes a tiny skeleton sled down the icy track and jumps on. During the 60-second, headfirst blast to the finish line, Faisal can shut out thoughts of war-torn Baghdad neighborhoods, worries about his parents' safety and his best friend who was killed in the conflict.

An employee ferrying boxes on a cart in the lobby of the fifth floor told me I needed to call the Rhode Island office for comment.

LAKE PLACID, N.Y — Just before he jumps on his skeleton sled for a wild, head-first ride down an icy, mile-long chute, Bradley Chalupski lowers his helmet visor, revealing a large Star of David. Beneath the helmet is another layer: a yarmulke emblazoned with the logo of the University of Maryland. In two years, Chalupski hopes, he will honor his sport and his Jewish heritage by participating in the Winter Olympics in Russia as the first ever member of Team Israel to race skeleton.

A judge has ordered the Calvert Marine Museum to pay a homeowners association $10,001 for improperly removing a 10 million-year-old fossil whale skeleton from communally owned cliffs. After more than eight hours of testimony over two days, Calvert Circuit Judge Warren Krug ordered the museum in Solomons to pay the community $1 for trespassing, and $10,000 for the value of the fossil. But while it was a win for the Chesapeake Ranch Estates property owners' association, its president, John Eney, called the award "an insult," and the victory "hollow."

The discovery of 10 million-year-old whale bones poking out of an eroding cliff face in Calvert County seemed a windfall for science. That's certainly how Shmuel Rotenstreich saw it when the bones appeared almost two years ago below the cliff-top home he shares with his wife, Debora Linzer, in Chesapeake Ranch Estates. So when someone from the Calvert Marine Museum asked if he'd object if the museum's paleontologists excavated the skeleton, Rotenstreich, 63, a computer scientist at George Washington University, did not hesitate.

American skeleton racer Kevin Ellis broke a vertebra in his back yesterday while competing against members of the U.S. luge team in a made-for-TV, non-Olympic sledding event. Ellis was being transported to a hospital in Turin for further evaluation and treatment, said U.S. Olympic Committee spokesman Darryl Seibel. There was no immediate word on Ellis' condition, but the first-time Olympian did have movement in his extremities, Seibel said. "There is no paralysis," Seibel said. Attempts to reach other members of the U.S. skeleton team by phone and e-mail were not immediately successful.

If the Maryland Science Center has anything to say about it, Baltimoreans will soon think of China as the home of more than chopsticks, serious ping pong players and the giant panda. By the end of the summer, it should also be known as the land of Mamenchisaurus, Szechuanosaurus and Monolophosaurus, not to mention Tuojiangosaurus and Psittacosaurus. Through Labor Day, dinosaurs from China will be invading Baltimore. And the folks at the Inner Harbor science center couldn't be happier. "Some of these have not been found anywhere else in the world," says Van Reiner, the center's president and chief executive.

WASHINGTON - One display case holds the remains of a 15-year-old Anne Arundel County boy, a servant who apparently was murdered and stuffed into a hole scooped out of a dirt cellar. Farther along are the bones of a strapping lad of 12 or 13, with evidence of a raging infection in his lower jaw. He was found in a hastily dug grave in Jamestown, Va., an Indian arrow in his thigh. Even more telling is a baby, born into the wealth and power of Maryland's first family and interred in a costly lead coffin in St. Mary's City.
