Aguateca history...
Aguateca is an important and well-excavated ancient Maya ceremonial site in Guatemala’s Peten Region.
Thought to have been one of the two capitals of the Maya Dynasty in the region – together with Dos Pilas – from around 700 AD, Aguateca was a vital stronghold, especially given its elevated position. In fact, in the eighth century, Dos Pilas was abandoned and its people sheltered at Aguateca.
When found, many of the structures at Aguateca had been burnt down and it is believed that the city was abandoned in approximately 800 AD, probably following an enemy attack.
