Archaeological Map of the Río Usumacinta Region 1

by David Stuart, The University of Texas at Austin

Back in 2007 I prepared this archaeological map for the UT Maya Meetings, devoted that year to The River Cities: Yaxchilan, Piedras Negras and Pomona. The map was reproduced in the sourcebook for those meetings, but otherwise it never saw wide circulation.  I am posting it here on Maya Decipherment with the obvious caveat that it omits a number of sites, especially small ones, and that it may be a bit out of date.

  1. A very nice map. It would be nice to have it correlate to the google map system.

    I see El Peru on there, a site that interests me. The stela sitting in Guatemala’s Anthropology Museum in Guatemala City from Peru are very detailed. But El Peru is not easy to get to from my understanding. Aguateca on your map is another stream head type place but it is easy to access. I hired a launch in Sayaxche on the Rio de la Pasion for a day trip a few weeks ago. The cost was $50 . A great little ruin for students of the Maya who maybe want to see something off the road.
