Photographer's Note

This is the entrance to the room at the north end of the structure (immediate foreground). It shows the doorway to the western section from which access was gained to the east. The doorway features characteristics of early Puuc construction with a wide stone lintel to support the weight above; and, it is noted that the jambs tilt outwards toward the floor - reminiscent of houses in the Ah Canul group of Oxkintok. Oh, and I should mention the floor was covered with stucco, beneath which were found a number of cists (cavities) with human remains.
