  • Radiocarbon dates from excavations at the prehistoric Maya site of Cuello, Belize, indicate occupation around 2600 BC in calendar years, antedating the hitherto earliest known occupation of the Yucatan Peninsula by some 1,700 yr and demonstrating that sedentary pottery-using communities in the Maya lowlands may be as early as any in Mesoamerica.
