Structure T30, Tayasal


Structure T30 of San Bernabe stands to the southwest of Structure T31, the mission church. This platform had significant use during the Late Preclassic, Terminal Classic, and Postclassic-Colonial period. During the Late Preclassic period, it included a circular platform surrounded by a thick plaster floor. It was later covered by fill and then revisited during the Late to Terminal Classic period. At this time, two burials and a cache were placed near the circular platform. In addition, a large disturbance occurred on the western edge of the building.  During the Postclassic-Colonial period, a rectangular building, which we believe was a residence, was constructed southeast of the circular building. The platform include large amounts of Colonial period refuse.
