Defensive wall

This photo is from the First Campeche Expedition in 1932 and shows the wall defending the northwest precincts of the city. It rises to a height of 6.15 m.
    The existence of this wall underscores the hostilities between Tikal and Calakmul which characterized the history of these two powers.
