FLORES ESQUIVEL, Atasta e SPRAJC, Ivan. Reconocimiento arqueológico en el sur de Campeche: nuevos hallazgos y contribuciones para una visión regional. Estud. cult. maya [online]. 2008, vol.32, pp.17-38. ISSN 0185-2574.
The latest stage of the Archaeological Reconnaissance in Southern Campeche Project has been accomplished in the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve, an area that, with few exceptions, had not been surveyed in an extensive way since 1930s. Apart from relocating some sites originally reported by Ruppert and Denison, we have located and mapped a number of previously unknown sites; some of them reach considerable extension and sizes, possess carved steale and remains of standing architecture. We discuss some characteristics of their architectural arrangements and spatial distribution, as well as significant similarities with other sites of the region and its surroundings.
