Tamarindito: Archaeology and Regional Politics in the Petexbatun Region

  • Juan Antonio Valdés (a1)

Abstract

The archaeological site of Tamarindito is located on an elevated escarpment that gives it a wide panoramic view of various distances all around, especially toward the northeast in the direction of the Río Petexbatun and the lake with the same name, in addition to the well-known, important archaeological site of Seibal. Tamarindito is 7 km east of Dos Pilas and 7 km northwest of Aguateca. It is one of the most important sites of the Petexbatun region and the capital of the most ancient polity of the region.
