Candzibaantún, Main Compound; A. Baker Pedroza, A. Flores Esquivel and I. Šprajc, upon finding the site in 2005.

In eleven field seasons accomplished in the archaeologically little known central parts of the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico, i.e. in the heartland of the territory once occupied by the Maya, a number of hitherto unreported archaeological sites were recorded, including major centers with large architectural complexes, sculpted monuments and hieroglyphic inscriptions containing important data on regional political history.


Archaeological reconnaissance field season reports for the seasons 1996, 1998 and 2007 are downloadable from the panel on the right, and for the seasons 2001 and 2002 they are availble on-line (see below). For public use the research is summarized within online presentation which includes also extensive database of illustrations (while interactive map is currently not in operation).
