An important ancient maya site is Uaxactun, also located in the Peten region of Guatemala. The site is made up of several groups of buildings and was occupied between about 500BC to 889AD. The building known as the observatory has a staircase beautifully decorated with stucco masks.
Uaxactún was a ceremonial center of only modest size, compared with Tikal, but it has been important in Mayan archaeology because intensive excavations of successive Mayan ceramic styles for the Formative through Classic periods, approximately 300 BC–AD 900 were made.
