Tikal: Great Plaza

Looking down on the Great Plaza from the North Acropolis [January 4, 1999]

"The Great Plaza that we see nowadays is a well manicured, grassy area. But originally it was plastered. Four different plaster floors were found a little below the present surface, dating from 150 BC to 700 AD."
