About Caracol Mayan ruins

Caracol started in the 1950, after the first official visit by Linton Satterthwaite from the University of Pennsylvania. During this time, he excavated and recovered 32 stone monuments, 2 causeways and 5 courts. In 1953-1994, Satterthwaite and Anderson mapped the central area of the site and continued excavation.

In 1978-79, Paul Healy from Trent University investigated the agricultural terraces; however, it was not until 1985 that the Caracol Project initiated. From 1989-95 intensive excavations were undertaken on the monumental and residential architecture on the site’s epi-centre.
