The inside of a Mayan tomb thought to be 1500 years old has been filmed by archaeologists.

Using a tiny camera, the scientists were able to capture images of the burial chamber in Palenque, Mexico.

As the microscopic device was lowered 16ft (5m) down into the tomb, they saw red paint and black figures emblazoned on its walls.
