Located in the Petén basin of Guatemala on the Yucatan Peninsula.

One of the best understood cities in the Mayan region, with a long list of dynamic rulers.

The earliest date recorded on the temple inscriptions was 1139 BC, when Tikal could have been a very small village on the Yucatan, although it is earlier than any archaeological evidence of humans on the site. (Harrison, 2000)

If this is the true date of the founding of Tikal, then its maintained memory until the 8th century is truly remarkable. (Harrison, 2000)
