Photographer's Note

Typical pyramids

Tikal is situated on a low hill. Perhaps in 700BC the Maya are still located here because of the isolated hilltop location, which is surrounded by marshes. Another reason could be found there firestones that the Maya needed for to spear and arrowheads, and knives can too. That time there was already trade with distant peoples.
