L.D.S. Shore Excursions - $100.00 - L.D.S. Shore Excursions Belize

Cahal Pech, meaning “Place of Ticks,” is a Maya site located in the Cayo district of Belize, just outside the town of San Ignacio. The site is within the upper region of the Belize Valley, close to both the Macal and Mopan rivers and about 10 kilometers (approx. 6.2 miles) from the neighboring Maya site of Xunantunich and 6 kilometers (approx. 3.7 miles) from Bueno Vista. These sites generally are made up of several plaza groups surrounded by large non-domestic structures, at least one ball court, and multiple monuments.

Cahal Pech covers approximately 10 square miles and includes 34 large buildings, the largest of which is around 24 meters tall, and a possible sweathouse. The site was founded in the Early Middle Preclassic period and continued to thrive as a Maya city until at least the end of the Classic period, though there is ceramic evidence of a longer occupation. Recent excavations have suggested that Cahal Pech, which was most likely settled by Maya from Guatemala, is one of the earliest Maya settlements in Belize.

Excavations go as far back as the 1950s, though the actual date of Cahal Pech’s discovery is unknown. The earliest published record of it is in Thompsons “Index of Maya sites in British Honduras”. Actual excavations, however, were not conducted until the middle of the twentieth century, when Linton Satterthwaite of the University Museum of the University of Pennsylvania discovered multiple stelae and monuments and excavated the ball court in the 1950s. Small-scale excavations continued at the site for several decades. In the 1980s, Dr. Jaime Awe, director of the Belize Institute of Archaeology, took over the excavations. In 2001 the Belize Valley Archeological Reconnaissance Project (BVAR) became involved in the work at Cahal Pech and in 2006 the American Foreign Academic Research (AFAR) began the first high school level field school in the United States at the site.
