Pyramids at Tikal, Guatemala, 2014

According to the Smithsonian, the city of Tikal may have been inhabited as early as 600 BCE, but most of the structures were built in the Mayan Classic Period (250-900 CE). The city was theorized to have been named Yax Mutal, but the name Tikal was first coined by La Gaceta, a Guatemalan newspaper who heard of the site from a gum sapper.
