    La ubicaci√≥n y dimensi√≥n de los espacios abiertos fueron aspectos considerados al planificar las ciudades de las Tierras Bajas Mayas en el periodo prehisp√°nico. Las plazas eran los espacios pol√≠ticos donde las √©lites gobernantes legitimaban a sus autoridades y manifestaban a otros participantes sus capacidades para comunicarse con los ancestros o deidades. Este trabajo se centra en la secuencia constructiva de ocho plazas en el Grupo Principal del sitio arqueol√≥gico de El Palmar, Campeche, M√©xico. Los resultados obtenidos durante las temporadas de campo en el 2007 y el 2009 indican que las grandes plazas fueron construidas durante la segunda mitad del Cl√°sico Temprano (400-600 d.C.) y que en ellas se celebraron ceremonias p√ļblicas inscritas en los monumentos conmemorativos.The location and dimension of open spaces were important aspects involved in Maya Lowlands planning during the prehispanic period. Plazas were political spaces in which ruling elites legitimated their authorities and manifested to other participants their capacities of communication with ancestors or deities. This paper focuses on the construction sequence of eight plazas at the Main Group of El Palmar, Campeche, Mexico. The results recovered from the 2007 and 2009 fieldwork seasons indicate that large plazas were build during the second part of the Early Classic period (400-600 AD), with the erection of commemorative monuments narrating public ceremonies

    Political Interactions among Social Actors: Spatial Organization at the Classic Maya Polity of El Palmar, Campeche, Mexicó

    This article examines the significance of outlying groups in the spatial organization of Classic Maya settlements. The relative scarcity of textual records concerning outlying groups has often made it difficult for researchers to analyze in detail the political interactions between individuals associated with these groups and the royal authority. The recent discovery of a hieroglyphic stairway at the Guzm√°n Group, an outlying group of El Palmar, Campeche, Mexico, provides an exceptional opportunity for understanding the constitutive process of spatial organization during the Late and Terminal Classic periods (ca. A.D. 600-900). Epigraphic studies of the Guzm√°n Group stairway have identified a main individual who emphasized his genealogical ties to lakam (banner-bearer) officials and his political relationship with foreign rulers of Cop√°n and Calakmul. The results of archaeological and epigraphic studies suggest that the Guzm√°n Group was a locus for negotiating power and ideology among different social actors
