“An iron ball no bigger than a marble may be the best evidence yet as to the fate of a long lost civilization long thought to be mythical.

Archaeologist Donald Blakeslee says the massive lost city of Etzanoa, glimpsed by Europeans for the only time in 1601, was located in Arkansas City, Kansas, a few miles from the Oklahoma border.

If he’s right, the site could be home to one of the largest former Native American settlements in North America, where Spanish conquistadors fought a pitched battle, mowing down a host of Indians with vicious cannon fire.

‘The Spaniards were amazed by the size of Etzanoa,’ Blakeslee, 73, told the Kansas City Star. ‘They said it would take two or three days to walk through it all.'”
