Important Stelae Found at Xunantunich
Archaeologists from the University of Arizona and from Belize have discovered two stelae at the site of Xunantunich. One of them is a panel with heiroglyphs on it. The glyphs show a date of 638 CE commemorating the death of Lady Baz’ek, the wife of the ruler of Caracol, Lod Kantu. He made an alliance with Calakmul, where Lady Baz’ek is from. Caracol was eventually defeated with the help of Xunantunich.
