British Honduras was a small British colony in Central America, on the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. Together with Mexico and Guatemala, it was the home of the Mayan civilization, which flourished in the region until European contact. While most of Central America was primarily dominated by the Spanish, this country was primarily settled by British loggers, and eventually became a British colony.
Today, what was once called British Honduras is the modern day independent country of Belize.
Adventures in British Honduras[edit | edit source]
In 1933, the government of British Honduras declared Indiana Jones to be a grave robber for the theft of a precious crystal quartz artifact from Cozan, something that would drastically damage his reputation. Pankot prime minister Chattar Lal learned of the event and reminded Jones of it when he was annoyed with the archaeologist's questions about Pankot Palace.
