These two inaccessible sites, hidden in the jungle, were found by an expedition led by Ivan Sprajc, of the Scientific Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts (ZRC Sazu).
According to information provided by the Academy, the most striking feature of Lagunita is a zoomorphic monument depicting the gaping maw of a Mayan earth monster, which was associated with the underworld, water and fertility. There are also several monumental buildings, a Maya ball game court and a pyramid temple nearly 20 meters high, along with 10 trails that connect the various buildings and the three altars.
The facade of Lagunita is in good condition and can be compared with those at Chicanná, Hormiguero, and Hochob, as well as other archaeological sites in Campeche. Some of the monuments are well preserved and show hieroglyphic inscriptions. According to the preliminary reading of specialist Octavio Esparza, inscriptions on Lagunita’s Stela number 2 notes that the monument was erected in 711 AD by the ruler known as “Lord Katunes 4th”.
According to the data gathered by the researchers, Tamchén and Lagunita had their heyday in the Late and Terminal Classic period (600-1000 AD).
Like Chactún, which was discovered last year, Lagunita and Tamchén have several “unusual” features that make them unique, and, in the opinion of researchers, this represents a challenge for future exploration in eastern Campeche.
