INAH has discovered a walled up passage in the Governor’s Palace at Uxmal dated at 570-770 CE. They found a Chaac mask and three staircases and two Maya arches that may correspond to the earliest architectural style at Uxmal. This passage shows us the Palace was divided into three segments linked by vaulted corridors. In the 10th century, conflict with Chichen Itza may have led to restricting access to protect the Puuc dynasty by way of walking off this passage.
The report was printed in the Yucatan times and reprinted at archaeology news network with many photos;
