Currently a researcher at the Instituto de Investigaciones Antropológicas at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Rodrigo Liendo Stuardo has been directing a multiyear archaeological project in the Palenque region since 1996. The goals of his project are twofold: the detailed description of archaeological sites and landscape features within a large area around the major site of Palenque; and an understanding of the local history of intense and complex interaction between small and large settlements in the area. This is an ongoing project; hence the ideas expressed in the following articles represent our current views about the data, some of which will remain and some will undoubtedly change as the project continues:
